 tubes are stepped with the hook holder built in. The thinner tube at the front will accept Dropweights and Flexiweights as well as HMH 3/32" ID Cone Heads. Flexitubes are 80mm (3 1/8") long and can be trimmed and customized into many different configurations.  14 Per Pack

The Adaptable Tube
Pro Flexitubes can be easily trimmed to any length with a razor blade or scissors. Cut ends may be flamed to smooth edges. Pro Flexitubes have 40mm of each diameter, 80mm total (3 1/8" overall).

Practical tying lengths for Pro Flexitubes are from 1/2" to 3".
 
Hard rain turned the river off-color and the steelhead turned dour.
This simple Fluorescent Red & Orange Bunny Leech fly was tied in camp in less than five minutes using an orange Pro Flexi Tube and materials from the portable fly tying kit
 
The Flexitube that this fly is tied on was trimmed to 1 3/8".  A TMC105, #4 hook was added for a perfect fit. The fly was combed to separate the fibers for more action in the water.
 
The next morning a couple of steelhead were landed using the "camp fly".
The fly wasn't pretty, but it was effective.

Pro Flexiweight
These weighted sleeves integrate with both the Pro Flexitube and  Pro Microtube systems. A Flexiweight can be added to a fly near the front middle or rear of the tying tube to change how the fly will ride in the water. Other tying materials can be added behind, in front of, or over the top of these tubes for many effects. Flexi Tubes are very finely finished, and very easy to use. They help add weight to your fly without adding bulk.

Pro Dropweights
These beautifully finished chrome plated brass weights allow a tier to customize both the weight and balance of any fly while they are tying it. These weights can be added at any point in the fly, including in front like a cone head. The blunt large end of each tapered weight is designed to buttress the base of a hackle and/or wing assembly to help it resist the flow of the water. This allows the fly to retain a larger diameter when wet. Dropweights can be added to flies in single or multiple-weight configurations. Dropweights can be used in conjunction with Flexiweights and/or Cone Heads.
We call this fly the Scandi Squid because it represents a squid, but is tied in a traditional Scandinavian tube fly style. Notice the Jungle Cock Eyes are at the rear of the fly. This pattern uses a large Drop Weight between the dubbed body and the wing/hackle assembly. This allows the fly to fish deeper and helps to retain its frontal swell when fishing in strong currents. The wing is a mixture of Finn Coon and Angel Hair. A Daiichi X-Point Saltwater Hook has been added. The opening of the hook holder has been reduced slightly with heat. We don't recommend that you do this in most cases, only when using hooks constructed with very small eyes.

Pro Microtube The Foundation of The Adaptable Tube Fly
Adaptable flies are tied on Pro Microtubes...
The Pro Microtube is the foundation of a totally new concept in tube fly tying, which allows every tier more artistic freedom than  ever before! With the addition of a Pro Hookguide, a Pro Microtube achieves a number of desirable features. The tube is very small in diameter so that you can construct flies that are very streamlined and very easy to cast, but which keeps the hook connected to the fly in a very secure fashion for a minimum of tangles. These tubes can be trimmed to any length to suit your needs. Very small flies to very large flies can be tied on these tubes.
Pro Microtubes can be trimmed to any length...
Converting traditional bucktail style fly patterns to tube flies has never been easier. The traditional steelhead bucktail fly configuration has been standardized over the past fifty years. Most have a two-tone body, a wet fly style hackle and a wing made from hair slanted back over the top. The only basic difference between flies are the colors used in their construction. Now you can carry a small box of flies and have possibly a hundred different color combinations to match any fishing situation you might encounter, simply by changing the hook-holder colors.
Cone-Heads, Pro Dropweights and Pro Flexiweights can be added to Pro Microtubes. This system renders the advantage of being able to to tie the exact same fly in several weights, so that you can fish at the exact depth you want.

Pro Conedisc™

The Pro Conedisc is arrow shaped so creates a vortex around the fly to allow soft materials to "open-up" and wiggle as the fly is swung across the river currents. This shape of cone is designed to leave the water with a minimum of disturbance when the fly is lifted fro the water to be re-cast.

Pro Conedisc

They are heavy enough to help your fly get down, but not so heavy as to be hung up in softer flows. These are a great addition to Intruder and Prom Dress type flies.

Pro Softdisc™

Is a brand new disc design. Use it in the front of the fly to create turbulence and volume to soft materials, or use on the body of the fly for lifting the wing, hackle etc. A new tendency we see here in Europe is that a lot of the Flytyers also use it in the back for better swimming characteristics. The optimized disc design makes it very easy to lift of the water, a light as a feather to cast. The shape allow the tier to make “less than perfect” heads, and still get a good result.

 The soft and flexible material gives the possibility to change the disc size, color or even change to another disc type is desired. All our discs have exactly the same diameter and pre tension in the center hole, so what you believe is the right color or what you mean the fishing situation dictates is entirely up to you. Just snap it off and put on another one. That is total flexibility!!

All in all a super cool multi function disc that gives you options like never before.

Pro Tube Pro Cones
Pro Cone™ is a classic style conehead, but optimized in every aspect. The material is a special stiff brass alloy, allowing Protubes to make the sides thinner.
This combined with a big exit angle will not crumple or suppress the hackle or hair-wing fly. Further more the big bore lets the tier make “less than perfect” heads and still get a very nice result.

HMH Cone Heads For Pro Tubes


This fly employs a Cone Head and an Owner Fly Liner Hook.
A fly that employs a cone head for weight is streamlined and comparatively easy to cast. Usually these flies will sink slightly faster than the fastest sinking fly line.  This is a distinct advantage when fishing for salmon and steelhead holding deep in cold water.  Cone heads are easy to tie with and can be added to a tube fly either before or after the rest of the fly is constructed. 

Melt the front of a plastic tube so that it swells and  holds the cone in place.  These "large bore" cones fit over several types of tubing.  Temple Dog style flies take on very seductive actions when front weighted with a heavy cone.  Saltwater squid and minnow imitations also assume "duck & dive" actions when tied with these cones. These 1/4" OD brass cone heads fit all Pro Tubes.
