Fly Tying Tip #131

I've been working on some big tube flies for early bright Atlantic Salmon fishing as well as patterns for New York State Steelhead.  The more I tie the better I understand how to make them wide and full.  Most of the time a fish is going to see a fly from the back and underneath.  That is the most important look to consider.  Using tubes with larger diameters is the key.  Creating larger tubes is easy and cost effective.
The beginning of this video shows how I create the larger diameter tubes.
