Today we’ve got the last in our short series about tube flies and how to rig them. It’s a master class in adding weight, combining tubes, preventing leader abrasion and more. You’ve already learned about tube fly basics, the two standard rigging methods, and rigging tandem tubes, right?
OK, well tune in as Eric Neufeld gets you all sorted out on some advanced tube fly techniques which include but are not limited to the following:
- Options for adding weight to tube flies – like beads, Fish Skulls, tungsten cone heads, bullet weights and more
- Using liner tubes to prevent abrasion
- Combining tubes and different colored weights to create custom patterns with different sizes and color combinations
