The previous fly was tied on a Dragonfly bottle tube, the next fly is on the original Loop bottle tube. On the next fly the colour combination is my own variation, the pattern is based on a style that I saw Beau Purvis fishing on the Dean two summers ago and I have adapted to the bottle tube. Beau refers to the style as a "string leech intruder" - he had tied it on a regular tube with dumbel eyes similar to an intuder, hence the name. This fly is tied with rhea as the throat hackle and utilizes a free swinging hook on a non slip loop knot - on chartreuse nylon in the photo to make it show up better for this post.
