|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.
