Tying With Unlined Brass Tubes
|Place the brass tube on a 1/16" mandrel and tie a fly in the conventional manner. Soft plastic hook-holder tubing is supplied in the package. Cut a 5/8" piece of this tubing and after the fly is tied and after the mandrel has been|
|removed, slip the hook-holder tubing over the rear end of the tube. You may have to wet the tube to get the hook-holder tubing to fit over the tube. If the tube is inserted about 3/16" into the hook-holder, the hook-holder will stay in place without glue or thread wraps. If a body is wrapped over the bare tube, remember to leave 3/16' of the rear of the tube exposed for attaching the hook-holder.|
To deploy the fly, insert your leader tippet through the tube fly from the front and out the back. Tie on your hook and slide the knot and eye of the hook into the soft plastic hook holder. This will keep the hook lined up with the fly for secure hook-ups and reduce tangles while casting.
