Peters Brown Trout Weamer – Tube

Finally got around to putting Peters fly on a tube and this is what I came up with. It is just a strait up copy of his original at this point (I have some other ideas that I want to try later). My purpose is to dress it on a heavy copper tube for the lower Niagara. I haven’t had a chance to get to the river and fish it yet, however. I did fish this one on an aluminum tube in a smaller trib this weekend and got a fish on it. Just thought I would pass it by the rest of the crew for comment.
