The Canadian Tube Fly Company
Nubby Tubes
These fantastic tubes are fantastic for two reasons. Though originally designed fro creating a fly with the
convenience of a bead head, we found that they are superb for making Scandinavian style tube flies.
Technique 1:
You simply tye on your pattern and leave the "Nub" at the end to create your own tube with an extra punch of
weight at the front. A super solution to solving hook "hang down".
Technique 2:
If you tie on the plastic liner tube that is inseeted in the metal component (like you would do with a Shumakov
tube) the ball on the end stabalizes the wing and hackle of the fly. It essentially gives the wing and hackle a
propped up effect that allows the fly to keep a great deal of its bulk when in a current.  

They come in 2 sizes (22mm and 15mm) and four types, brass, copper, gunsmoke, and silver.

These Nubby Tubes were tyed with the "Nub" exposed. This gives the fly the look of
a bead head.  We like to dip some of the "nubbs" in our custom
Powder Paint to give
them a coloured head
.
These tubes were tied in the Scandinavian style. All tying is done on the plastic
liner. The "Nub" acts as a prop that holds the shape and silhouette of the wing an
hackle while being fished in a current. You end up with a large profile fly that is
well balance (no "Hook Hngdown") and has a nice neat head.
