Hybrid Tubes
Juri Shumakov Long Range Tubes
Hybrid Tubes are tubes that are made up of both metal and
plastic components where the tying is (usually) done on the
plastic portion of the
liner tube, in front of the metal "outer"
tube. The late  was
Juri the first tube tyer to pioneer this idea
of incorporating plastic and metal in order to achieve better
balance in his flies.

If you do an Internet search for "TUBE FLY SYSTEMS" you
will see that there are several companies now selling hybrid
tubes as complete systems, simplifying into three or four
basic components that fit together like a glove. We have
decided to take a different approach to tube tying, putting the
creativity back into tubes!

All of our tubes listed here work on the same plastic
tube. In most cases, the metal is used as the body of the fly
and the tying is done on the plastic section in front of the
metal tube.
