Orange Spey Tube

Here's an adaption of Glasso's Orange Spey with grey and orange Polar Bear. I sub'd for the Grey Heron and Orange hackle tips
Tube is an Eppendorf tube
Butt-silver oval
Body-rear2/3 orange floss ,front 1/3 orange Seal
Rib- oval and flat silver
Body hackle- grey Polar Bear
Throat- Teal
Wing-orange Polar Bear
Easy to tie and held up to sunlight REALLY glows
Any Spey fly can be adapted to a tube by substituting hair for heron.The Ackroyd REALLY adapts nicely to a tube and you can tie 'em down to # 6.
However on the Ackoyds I use Silver Pheasant as the wing.
