Tying Temple Dog Style Tube Flies

Lately there has been a great interest in tube flies and how to tie them, especially some of the European style flies such as the Temple Dog. Therefore I thought I would give some basic instructions on tying the temple dog as they were taught to me by some of my friends in Denmark & Finland. They are not difficult to tie as you will see.

I am not going to step through tying the body on this fly because I figured most of you have tied bodies on flies before and doing it on a tube is no more difficult than doing it on a hook. So this is what I will start with. The fly is the Orange and Green Temple Dog and the pattern is as follows.

Tip: Oval Silver Tinsel
Tag: Florescent Yellow Antron
Tail: Florescent Yellow Antron
Body: First 1/2 Green holographic Tinsel; second Black seal fur or sub.
Body Hackle: Silver Badger
Rib: Oval Silver Tinsel
Hackle: Black Cock Hackle
Wing: Orange Fox or Tempeldog Hair, red and pearl flash, 3 to 5 peacock herls, and Black Fox or Tempeldog Hair on top.
Hackle: Black cock hackle
Cheeks: Jungle cock
Head: Black thread
