Heartily agree!

Very nice indeed. Inspiring to one just getting into tube flies (though great patterns on any hook).

tube flies

saltron & kush, hi, i have been following your discussion which touches on a problem i have with tying coneheads on plastic tubes. i have various plastic (polyethylene)custom made tubes some lined & some not but i need to find a source for the inner liner even thinner than wd40 straws. it must not exceed 2mm in outer diameter & preferably be softer than the wd40 straws.i find cotton bud plastic tubes very useful but not thin enough for inserting thru cone & then back into main tube. how thin is the product from your model shop? any thoughts gratefully received!paul.

New Look at the Raging Prawn

As I'm donating a couple of these to the Seattle Show Raffle I took some photos that I thought I'd post. The second one in particular gives the underside perspective.

Jake,

The "yellow" is actually true orange, it always seems to come up yellow in photos or as happened in the BC Outdoors Magazine photo, it gets overpowered by the hot orange. The colour is actually very much like a Japanese orange colour.

Speaking of Japanese, the orange hook holder was given to me by my good friend and CND Rod Designing genius, Nobuo Nodera from Japan! I am planning on asking him to bring me more when he comes out for the Seattle show. It is cool, it's very thin walled and is probably the nicest stuff I've worked with, it comes in black too.

Another cool thing is the tube the fly is tied on. It too came from Nobuo and is a short section of graphite rod-tip! It is very thin and light - I really like it as well! When Dana and I asked where we could buy it Nobuo just smiled and said you can't - then he winked and reminded us that he is a rod-builder.

Too Cool

If he can bring some of the black and orange hook holder, would I be too bold in asking for several feet as well. I am looking for a thinner material than I am using. I have included a few samples of my tube blanks with the flies for the Seattle show for Dana to critique. Have a look at them and let me know what you think

Failing him being able to provide any hook holder tubing , could Nobuo advise of a supplier?

As aside I see that the CND rods are coming avail...one on the auction block eh?

I am sending my flies tomorrow to Dana for the show. Yours are in there, so when he says they never arrived; hold his bobbin hostage....grin grin

He bears watching...

Speybum gave us about 15' of the new type VIII poly-tip stuff - somehow it ended up in Dana's pocket

I'll talk to Nobuo and if Dana doesn't cough up some of that type VIII then maybe I'll give you his share of the tubing (if Nobuo can bring some). :hehe:
