A Tube Fly is a fly
tied on a tube! They're easy to rig and fun to fish. Better yet, they are
some of the most versatile and effective flies that you can use for all
kinds of gamefish.
To rig a tube fly, simply
thread the tippet through the tube, then tie to your hook of choice. Snug
the hook eye into the rear of the tube, and you're ready to catch fish.
