The Canadian Tube Fly Company
Scandinavian Style Plastic Tube
Scandinavian style plastic tubing has been around for many years now,
most popular in Europe. This tubing is versatile in that it can be tied onto
directly or it can be used to line various
metal and hybrid tubes as well
as be combined with many styles of
cones to make a winning
combination. It also works well in making "
step tubes" that start with a
large size of tube at the back of the fly and then gets smaller as the small
size of tube is inserted into the larger tube. A good way to make a smaller
head on all of your plastic patterns. Nice bright colour tubing also gives
you many options when creating your new secret tube pattern!
All of these tubes are
put together in a "step"
fashion where large
diameter (or Glow, Flec,
or Speckled) tube is
inserted with small
diameter Scandinavian
tubing. The small
diameter "scandy" tube
not only makes for a
much smaller finished
head, it also allows the
tyer to add many of our
cone styles to the
Junction Tube is
then added to the back
of the Large Scandy tube
and the
hook is secure!
