5.0 out of 5 stars Save money, space, and time by learning about tube flies, 21 Jun 1999
By A Customer
This review is from: Tube Flies: A Tying, Fishing & Historical Guide (Paperback)
I picked up Tube Flies in hopes that I might be able to better tie larger flies for blue water fishing. Not only did the advice in this book allow me to tie in the sizes I needed but the instructions corrected the problem of line twist that made me give up on tube flies a decade ago. My blue water box is now 3/4's tube flies and the money I have saved on hooks is, at least, three times the money this book costs. One pattern from the book took 20 tuna on a recent trip, and is still in good enough shape to take with me on the next trip. Since the fly slips up out of the mouth of the fish, it doesn't get chewed up during the fight and you have to take fewer patterns, that weigh less. There is a lot of history, and rigging advise as well. For a smart salmon, steelhead, or blue water fisherman this book is highly recommended.

I wanted to tie some tube flies as I was getting worried by the number of small trout that I was catching. So I sort some inspiration from the master. This book tells you and shows you how to do this. I tied some from the book and made some up myself. However sadly it didn't stop me catching the small "twittering" trout - they just attacked tube flies instead

Great book on this subject

Unfortunately there are very few publications on this subject.
This book makes up for this. Easy to follow with many good photos and diagrams
