We had the pleasure of getting to know Juri Shumakov
before his death. In our correspondences with him, he
always felt it was a good way to properly balance a fly to
avoid hook hang down. By simply adding three cones to the
plastic lining of the tube a beautifully segmented body can
be created, we like to tie in both wing and hackle in between
each cone. We also add a wing and hackle behind the first
cone and in front of the last cone. This gives the patterns a
great deal of bulk which still sinks quickly because of the
added weight of the cones. These flies have to be seen, the
fish will love them too!
