He bears watching...

Speybum gave us about 15' of the new type VIII poly-tip stuff - somehow it ended up in Dana's pocket

I'll talk to Nobuo and if Dana doesn't cough up some of that type VIII then maybe I'll give you his share of the tubing (if Nobuo can bring some). :hehe:

Too Cool

If he can bring some of the black and orange hook holder, would I be too bold in asking for several feet as well. I am looking for a thinner material than I am using. I have included a few samples of my tube blanks with the flies for the Seattle show for Dana to critique. Have a look at them and let me know what you think

Failing him being able to provide any hook holder tubing , could Nobuo advise of a supplier?

As aside I see that the CND rods are coming on the auction block eh?

I am sending my flies tomorrow to Dana for the show. Yours are in there, so when he says they never arrived; hold his bobbin hostage....grin grin

kush Jake,

The "yellow" is actually true orange, it always seems to come up yellow in photos or as happened in the BC Outdoors Magazine photo, it gets overpowered by the hot orange. The colour is actually very much like a Japanese orange colour.

Speaking of Japanese, the orange hook holder was given to me by my good friend and CND Rod Designing genius, Nobuo Nodera from Japan! I am planning on asking him to bring me more when he comes out for the Seattle show. It is cool, it's very thin walled and is probably the nicest stuff I've worked with, it comes in black too.

Another cool thing is the tube the fly is tied on. It too came from Nobuo and is a short section of graphite rod-tip! It is very thin and light - I really like it as well! When Dana and I asked where we could buy it Nobuo just smiled and said you can't - then he winked and reminded us that he is a rod-builder.

Tell me something

Where did you find the orange hook holder tube ?.
01-27-2003 10:10 PM

Beautiful pattern....I can see why they work so well...that yellow really comes through in this photo better than the previous postings.....great have got me started on tying tubes again......nicely done

Best regards.....jake

New Look at the Raging Prawn

As I'm donating a couple of these to the Seattle Show Raffle I took some photos that I thought I'd post. The second one in particular gives the underside perspective.

tube flies

saltron & kush, hi, i have been following your discussion which touches on a problem i have with tying coneheads on plastic tubes. i have various plastic (polyethylene)custom made tubes some lined & some not but i need to find a source for the inner liner even thinner than wd40 straws. it must not exceed 2mm in outer diameter & preferably be softer than the wd40 straws.i find cotton bud plastic tubes very useful but not thin enough for inserting thru cone & then back into main tube. how thin is the product from your model shop? any thoughts gratefully received!paul.

pmflyfisher Yes very nice, that black one in a small size will work in Michigan.

Thanks for the hints on how to do the metal tubes

On may way to the hobby shop soon !!

Heartily agree!

Very nice indeed. Inspiring to one just getting into tube flies (though great patterns on any hook).

Found this "tucked away" in the archives. Too good not

to recycle.

Doublespey Uh Oh! Better not market that one - it could have a really degenerative effect on those who treat their spey rods as extensions of more than just their arms!

Now repeat after me - "this is my SPEYROD and this is my . . . ." <g>

I'll bring along some Striper flies for inspiration on Saturday if I can dig them up.

Glo Bugs??? Dana, are you OK??

kush Sturndriver - keep your pants on! Now if I don't get my bobbin back in one piece - phyiscally OR mentally (GLO-BUGS!!!) I will be releasing the "Sturndriver" bio down on Denman Steet! Furthermore, who knows what interesting palm-familiar shape that spey rod handle could take.

As for tube flies - its mayfly/chironomid time for me (though I am getting psyched to try tying some striper patterns for when I go out to see Juro at Cape Cod next summer! We will see what we can tie down at Birch Bay mid-summer - I think I'd rather see some of your tube versions Of Derek Brown's Arctic White than the Thompson Stone!

Tight lines - tyler.

ps - what do you think of Brian's suggestion for this Sat or Sun?
