Tube flies have gained popularity in fly fishing for steelhead, salmon and saltwater fish.

Temple Dog tied by Josh Linn. Tube flies are accepted world wide and each geographic area and culture exerts its influence on how tubes are made and how they are employed.  All sizes of flies are tied on tubes.  Currently, tube fly sizes range from tiny trout flies to huge billfish flies.  Salmon and steelhead tube flies have been going through a period of constant evolution for the last 10-years. This fueled by a cross pollenization of Scandinavian, UK and Pacific Northwest tying and fishing styles.  The most obvious advantage of using tube flies is being able to size the fly and the hook
independently.  This approach has proven to be most beneficial when larger than average flies are employed.  In the case of steelhead flies, the tube fly approach has allowed them to become much larger and lighter in weight.  Directions for tying Scandi Tube Flies with F.I.T.S tubing...

HMH Cut-T-Length Flexible Micro Tubing
Flies can be tied directly onto this tiny tubing, or it can be used to line any other tube that fits a 1/16" mandrel.  To use a s a liner, first tie your tube fly.  Then take a length of Micro Tubing and heat one end with a flame so that it swells to nearly twice the diameter.  Then insert the micro tubing from the rear end of the fly and out through the front.  Trim the Micro Tubing about 1/16' longer than the fly and flame the end so that it swells and won't come out.
24' length coil. Clear.

.060" outside diameter tubing will fit on the HMH .041" dia. Pin/mandrel. Cut to any length to tie nymphs, terrestrials and micro streamers. Takes hooks as small as #16 or #18.

Cone head tube fly tied by Josh Linn.

HMH Cone Heads For Tubes
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.  They are most often used with Hard Plastic tubes.  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.

Owner Cutting Edge Point Owner Hooks Co. Ltd was established in 1974 and their mission policy was “Perfection In Hooks”, a motto the company still strives for today. CUTTING POINT® HOOKS - Owner's revolutionary triple-edge design is what put the Owner name and its product line on the map. The unique, patented hook design is led by a needle sharp point, and as the hook begins to penetrate, the resistance actually decreases as the three edges cut their way through for an instant, positive hook-set. The machining process that renders this unique point requires extra steps and thus extra expense. Owner hooks are expensive, but give extra advantages,
so they are worth it to many experienced anglers. While other hook manufacturers claim their hooks to be sharp, or sharpest, Owner CUTTING POINT® hooks are the only hooks designed specifically with instant penetration as the primary design feature.
Owner Fly Liner Hooks
No expense has been spared. These hooks are very finely crafted. Designed as a saltwater hook for fishing live bait, this aggressive design features the Owner Cutting Edge Point. The black chrome finish provides a very smooth, abrasion-free finish for the leader connection to the eye. They are reasonably easy to sharpen after contact with a river bottom. Short shank, Standard gap, no off-set, cutting edge point, very sharp, micro barb, forged, ball eye, black chrome finish.
