Tube Flies from Chilean Patagonia

Hi everybody. I'm a Chilean Fly Tyer.

I would like to show a tube fly pattern to catch big brown trouts of Chilean and Argentinean Patagonia. Name: Clouser Minnow Tube Fly.

Regards,
Patagonian

Nice fly. Very much like the sunray shadow . . . without the eyes. One of my favorites and it's one of my friend's best flies in Tierra del Fuego. Fish take it very aggressively.

Gorgeous photographs, made better by the flies within them. It's interesting how the designs themselves tell stories of thick bodied searun browns, big rolling rivers and valleys of fabled Patagonia just in looking at them.

Bill, thanks also for demystifying the sunray shadow with the pic / ruler. I would imagine it may also be tied with a metal tube body (?)

Yes, I also tie them on metal tubes. One of the most productive flies on Gaspé rivers last year was one I tied on a 3/4" aluminum tube. Overall length about 2". With green underwing instead of white. We've also tied them with red underwings. My favorite black hair (because of how it flows so well) is human hair. I've also added jungle cock eyes, but don't know if it makes any difference.

Bill,

That explains why my bald spot got bigger the last time I ran into you.

Patagonian,

Thanks for posting those flies, very nice! I have a friend in Montana that has started using tubes in the Madison, Yellowstone and some of the other rivers he guides on. I’m sure yours would work very well for him. Could you please post the patterns for them? There are always people on the forum that would love the exact recipes to make them up. Keep them coming, we would love to see more of your flies.

Charlie

Thanxs wrke, juro and Charlie.

I don`t buy the tubes in flyshops; I make my owns tube with diferents parts of bic pencils, medical supplies, little red tube of Spray Lubricant (like a "W-40"), small metal tubes of hobbie shops, etc. I like very much to prepare the materials, and then tie the fly.

In my country, Chile, the flyfishermans don`t use flies tubes, except in the Rio Grande, Tierra del Fuego (chilean seccion).

I like to invite you to visit our web site "riosysenderos.com". I'm a one of owner.

See you,
Patagonian

Patagonian,

Nice tube flies. It is very nice seeing some flies from the other hemosphere.

I wasn't aware that Pacific Salmon were found in Patagonia. I was under the impression that Pacific Salmon were only found in some of the mainland Chilean rivers.

Hi Flytyer.
Coho and Chinook Salmons lives in rivers and lake of south of Chile and part of south of Argentina, during November to May. They ascend the rivers conect with Pacific Ocean to reach many Patagonian streams to spawn.

Some our Chinooks weigh over 44 lb. (20 kg.)

A excelent tube fly for the Chinook Salmon is "Chinook Destryer Tube Fly"

See you,
Patagonian

Patagonian,

Thanks for the info on coho and chinook. By the way, nice fly. Is it used primarily in the estuaries or do you use it in upstream area too?

I've also heard rumors of steelhead being present in some Chilean rivers; but none of the folks who mentioned them to me ever saw saw one.

Flytyer.
This fly can be used in estuaries and upstream area too.

In connection with the steelhead ..... of course, they are in some rivers and lakes of Chile, like Rahue River and Rupanco Lake, near of Osorno City, and Patrohue River y Puelo River near of Puerto Montt City.

Regards,
Patagonian


To catch Coho Salmon, I use the "Llanquihue Killer Tube Fly". Its Great !!!
