Plan D Tube Fly Mandrel kit

vac8006
$4.99
Mandrels designed specifically for you to cut to fit your patterns - Designed for you to customize your Plan D Boxes.

Tube Fly Instructions Plan D Tube Fly Mandrels are made from 316 marine grade stainless steel and come in three different sizes: § Small (.03” o.d.) Fits most micro tubing § Medium (.04” o.d.) Fits medium HMH tubing § Large (.051” o.d.) Fits large tubes such as bluewater flies *Please note-some store-bought flies that are tied on micro tubing may not fit a mandrel. Some tiers tie too tight or do not use a proper sized mandrel when tying and crush or collapse the tubing. If there is a fly you love that does not fit one of our mandrels, please contact us through our website www.plandfishing.com and we will make every effort to work with the manufacturer to remedy the issue.

1. To get started you will need: (1) pair of wire cutters, (1) Plan D mandrel kit, (1) Plan D tube fly box and your flies.

2. Insert a mandrel through the back end of the fly until the clip at the end of the mandrel clips over the junction tubing (or the tube itself if not using junction tubing.)

3. Measure exposed mandrel against the tube block in the fly box and cut mandrel to length using wire cutters. Leave some exposed mandrel sticking out of the end of the tube block.

4. Insert the exposed mandrel into the slotted silicone tube block. Repeat with the rest of your flies! Flies are held securely in the silicone block . The box can even be used to rinse and dry flies that were used in salt water. The small foam pad is for your tube fly hook storage.

5. Lastly, please consider mandrel kits to be like sink tips. You really can’t get by with just one tip or one size of tip. Each box comes with a free medium mandrel kit to get you started. We highly recommend that you purchase at least one small mandrel kit to ensure you have what you need. Grabbing one more additional as back up is never a bad thing to do!
