Hybrid Tubes
Juri Shumakov Long Range Tubes
Hybrid Tubes are tubes that are made up of both metal and plastic
components where the tying is (usually) done on the plastic portion of the
liner tube, in front of the metal "outer" tube. The late  was Juri the first
tube tyer to pioneer this idea of incorporating plastic and metal in order
to achieve better
balance in his flies.

If you do an Internet search for "TUBE FLY SYSTEMS" you will see that
there are several companies now selling hybrid tubes as complete systems,
simplifying into three or four basic components that fit together like a
glove. We have decided to take a different approach to tube tying, putting
the creativity back into tubes!

All of our tubes listed here work on the same plastic
liner tube. In most
cases, the metal is used as the body of the fly and the tying is done on
the plastic section in front of the metal tube.
