|We love Flex Tube! The way patterns tied with Flex Tube allows
flies to come to life, especially on brighter days. Though we
have always used cones on many of our Flex Tube flies,
sometimes with bulkier patterns, we find that using the liner
tube inserted into the Flex Tube can give the fly a bit of a gap
between the cone and the head of the fly. We designed our new
Flex Tube Cones to address the problem of getting a nice snug
fit onto the front of your fly. A fit that gives a smooth
transition from the cone right to the wing. With these new
cones, they have a large hole to fit directly onto the Flex Tube or
standard plastic tube. Their unique shape also leaves a wide
cavity to really fit well over the tying thread too!

|The technique of putting a cone on a Flex Tube by inserting liner tube (left) into
the front of the fly works well for slim patterns. With bulkier patterns, that have a
large amount of tying thread at the "head", Flex Tube Cones are the way to go!
|You can see from the picture on the left how much of a recess is in this cone.
They will easily slip over almost any build up of thread and materials.
|We love to match up the colour of the cone to the colour of the Flex Tube. We
often cover the Flex Tube with either pearlescent mylar tinsel, Lazer Wrap or a
thin dub of seals fur or other light reflecting dubbing. The body almost
glows and the cone brings out even more colou
|All you have to do to secure them is cut the Flex Tube or Plastic Tube 1/16 of
an inch past the cone and slowly melt it. You can see with the picture on the
left that these cones can also be used with our plastic tubing.
