Epoxy phree dual tube...Mostly natural phur and pheathers...Some phlash...

It's beenawhile...Weshallsee (soon) !?

Nice tie... what do you mean 'dual' tube? Sounds interesting.

Great Job Pete... I might start looking into the tube flies...BUT, what I also want to know is where did you find that "Old" dime????

Since you asked...:confused:
Why bother?!...evolution/revolution...
In order to mount the hook closer to the nose which will move the centre of gravity forward (as opposed to the rear hook position of the typical tube fly) I've incorporated two (2) tubes...
IMHO...The forward hook position yields a more natural swimming action...and a flat or slightly nose down dead drift (depending)... ;)
The tops tube supports most of the phur/pheathers/phlash... the material approaches the final/forward 20% I'll add a short/second/lower tube that will hold the soft hook holding junction tube...
..after securing the lower tube...
The remaining materials (wing, eyes, epoxy, whatever) are added and the final touches are attended to...
Testing in the official Area61 multi purpose drowning pool yielded nice movement and good balance...pleasing colour and confidence inspiring results! :D

The dime came from a time warped "previous life" could buy a cup a' Joe or make a local pay phone call...GoPhigure!?

Not at all Penguin, I just didn't know what a dual tube was but now I see said the blind man. :)

Great idea... also allows you to switch up the lengths of the double decker for different patterns.

Leave it to a gadget guy to come up with such a cool idea. :cool:

I would like to see the double tube tied flatwing one wing on top one on the bottom. This would make a dual wing flatwing.
Always being creative is your specialty HUH !
Nice job !

Joe, Thanks for the talk today!... Pete... I will be coming down... make sure the motion sensors work...because I will be down and sneak up on you.....don't answer the door after May 1:) :lildevl: :wink:...JMorin CIA overseas operative in need of rejuvenation...Do you still have the pic of you and me and "selma lacum".... That long rob really bothered me... but you "made me do it"...

Joe...let's go fishing!
About the DualPhlatWings and bottom...
As prototype hydro-dynamic testing in the muti-purpose Area61 drowning pool demonstrated...the additional drag index of a bottom wing induced a rolling moment and the fly tracked DOA on its' side...even a heavier hook could not offset the rolling effect during the retrieve or in a current.
The drag coefficient of a single top wing better allows the weight of the hook to act as a keel and the fly tracks as intended...
Tying techniques included deceiver, reverse tye, and flat well as a my tubular modifications...
A little aerodynamics 101 goes a long way!

Watch out for the trip wires, remote sensors, poison ivy, and swamp muck!

The process can be scaled down a bit...
The stacked junction tube moves the hook forward to achieve better balance and a more natural swimming action...
Also, if big fish are on small bait, I can match the hook for the occassion...
Here's a DNA epoxy head stand alone and a comparison shot with the original herring...Soonweshallsee!?
