|Now that you have everything you need to fish with a tube.....how
does it all go together? Of course, this is an area where ones own
personal preferences come into play. Here are three techniques we
use for fishing with a tube......
This is the most common way to use a tube fly.

|How to Fish a Tube
|Junction tubes (also known as hook sleeves) are an important part of the whole tube
fly package. Without a reasonably secure connection between your tube and hook,
your overall fly will not cast, flow, or fish the way you intended it.
While testing new patterns the last few seasons, I have moved away from the usual
way on connecting the tube and the hook. It began when I start using Flex Tube as a
junction tube instead of just using it for actual tube patterns. Now available in over
20 colours, both opaque and transparent, Flex Tube adds an extra dimension to your
fly. Not only does it work as a fabulous junction tube (because of its flexibility and
temperature resistant properties) it also gives that extra splash of either vibrant or
subtle colour to your pattern.
