Send us a picture when you have the tube version ready -- I'll be interested to hear how it performs. My own tube attempts have been rather tepid so I'm interested to find out if the concept can move over to tubes. My weamer design has one major flaw, it's a relatively long fly vs. hook length so short takes are common -- the tube idea will probably help in this department.

I'm also planning to use Bill's minnow info to extend the weamer idea to black nose dace, emerald shiner, creek chub, and rainbow smelt. I'm especially interested in producing aa large weamer design for the rainbow smelt to swing on the surface of the Whirlpool, but right now, I'm still on the hunt for a large but light TULE hook.
