|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
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.
