|We love Flex Tube! The way patterns tied with Flex Tube
allows flies to come to life, especially on brighter days.
Though we have always used cones on many of our Flex
Tube flies, sometimes with bulkier patterns, we find that
using the liner tube inserted into the Flex Tube can give
the fly a bit of a gap between the cone and the head of
the fly. We designed our new Flex Tube Cones to address
the problem of getting a nice snug fit onto the front of
your fly. A fit that gives a smooth transition from the cone
right to the wing. With these new standard plastic tube.
Their unique shape also leaves a wide cavity to really fit
well over the tying thread too!

|The technique of putting a cone on a Flex Tube by inserting liner tube (left) into the
front of the fly works well for slim patterns. With bulkier patterns, that have a large
amount of tying thread at the "head", Flex Tube Cones are the way to go!
|You can see from the picture on the left how much of a recess is in this
cone.They will easily slip over almost any build up of thread and materials.
|We often cover the Flex Tube with either pearlescent mylar tinsel, Lazer
Wrap or a thin dub of seals fur or other light reflecting dubbing. The body
almost glows and the cone brings out even more colour!
|All you have to do to secure them is cut the Flex Tube or Plastic Tube 1/16 of
an inch past the cone and slowly melt it. You can see with the picture on the
left that these cones can also be used with our plastic tubing.
