Tube Flies have gained popularity for many kinds of game fish.  Recently this type of fly has become extremely popular for both winter and summer 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.  These flies are very streamlined and easy to cast.  Plastic tube models are very lightweight which gives them lots of action when they are submerged.  These lightweight flies are comparatively snag free.  The best way to fish these flies is with a sinking tip line.  They are cast across current and allowed to swing deep under tension.  Each fly is supplied with a Size 4 TMC Model 105 short shank heavy wire hook.  To tie the fly onto the end of your leader, simply pull the hook from the rear of the plastic tube, pass your leader through the front of the fly, tie the hook to your leader and re-insert the hook into the tube.  If the hook becomes damaged it can be easily replaced without disposing of the fly.  It is wise to purchase and carry spare hooks.
Tubes and hooks for tying your own flies.
