Winter Round Table
December 08, 2002, 1:00-5:00 P.M.
Tying & Fishing Steelhead Tube Flies

Tube Flies have gained popularity for many kinds of game fish.  Recently this type of fly has become extremely popular for winter steelhead.  Originally designed so that a smaller hook could be used with a large fly to cut injury to wild steelhead, this configuration also proved itself as a way to land a higher percentage of fish.  The December 08 Winter Months Round Table features all of the latest tubes, tube fly tying vises and materials used in the production of the local favorites. 


Tubes for tying tube flies can be made from brass, aluminum or plastic.  Soft plastic tubes can accommodate the eye of a small short shank hook.  This configuration hooks fish quickly, yet decreases the injury that sometimes occurs using larger hooks.
