Are Tube Flies rally different than traditional flies tied on longer shank hooks? Yep. And unless you have fished tubes much, there is only one way to really understand the difference, and that is to fish the tubes. You can use shorter shank hooks, lighter wire, and both of those features add up to better hooking and holding properties. And then too, tube flies tend to be more durable because they don't get directly chewed up when you are playing fish after fish. The fly slides up the leader and stays out of the way.
Do Tube flies fish differently? A little. This is rather subjective, but many of our guides and staff believe that the tubes skate better and semi in a more lively manner than flies tied on heavier shanked hooks. As always, you need to be the judge, but we have great confidence in the tube flies offered here.
Are these Tubes proven? Yes. Some of these patterns are being offered commercially now for the first time in 2014, but we have been fishing many of these patterns for several seasons and test fishing prototypes in our role with the fly fishing industry. We can assure that these flies, every one of them, are winners!
