Tube: one yellow and one blue

dryfly.me.2013.12.14.tube_yellowGot some really long Templedog patches the other day and with the one above here I finally got it slim enough: one thing I have learned the hard way the last couple of weeks is that I add way too much hair when I start on the underwing, ending up with a fly that is too big. This one also got a nice split yellow/black body as you can see in the picture below (the tinsel isn’t aligned properly though…)

dryfly.me.2013.12.14.tube_yellow_underLooking at the tube flies I have created the last weeks I also see that I tend to make massively large flies! So: I will try to create some smaller tubes to learn to control that aspect of tying on a tube as well: big fly is not equal to big fish!
