|We have been developing a softer, flexible, temperature resistent tubing material,
that will meet the needs of tube fly fishermen. Our custom extruded FlexTube has
arrived.! FlexTube comes in a wide range of colours, both bright and transparent to
really add life to the body of your fly. Yuri Shumakov wrote an interesting article in
Rackelhanen a while back about the transparent qualities of coloured tubes......it's
worth a read. This wonderful new tube is unique for five reasons.
It is softer so your plastic flies do not need a junction tube. Most hooks will fit into the
end of the actual pattern you create.
A smaller tube can be inserted in to the front of your pattern. This allows you to easily
add your favourite bead or cone head.
Flex Tube can be used as junction tube for Bottle , Shumakov and Tapered Tubes.
Endless colour combinations to give the back of your pattern that extra kick.
Flex Tube can be combined with Bottle tubes to make fantastic patterns that are well
balanced with the hook at the back and the Bottle Tube at the front.
With Flex Tube, one can easily melt a "lip" on both ends of the pattern. Just twisting
the tube next to an open flame will allow you to create the ridge that will keep your
materials more securely on the tube. Flex Tube will not discolour when melted.
