Charlie's inspiration

Charlie did up a tube version of the weamer pattern so I had to have a go at doing my own tube version.

This version uses very light tan Megahair which was the original wing material for the first two experimental weamers that I had tied.

I find that I tie a larger fly when doing tubes. We'll see how well the larger tie works.

I'll be trimming off the front end of the tube as soon as the glue dries.

I hope the tube version reduces the short take problem that the original suffers from.

Very nice Peter!

With spring at our door the bigger flies should work well, high water and aggressive fish. Let us know when you get some fish on that puppy.
