Fly of the Month

I just tied these flies on Eumer Conetubes. These weighted tubes swim really nice fishing large waters for Steelhead & Salmon. What really amazed me when fishing them last winter was how level they swam in the water. Over days of use these patterns seemed to get you to the Zone without getting hung up on bottom near as much as flies fished with lead eyes etc.. One thing about the tubes was the paint did chip off a little on the cone part at the front of the tube but a little hard as nails coated on them helps allot in preventing this, just simply coat the cone at the same time you cement the head of the fly. On these patterns I use a colored tubing for the hook locks to match up with the patterns giving these simple flies a more refined look! Oh, one more thing... these flies did catch fish too:)
