HOW TO TIE AND RIG A TANDEM TUBE FLY

video     
There has been several people that have emailed me lately to show how I tie and rig a Tandem Tube Fly.
If you have never seen this fly before here is a quick explanation on why its such a great fly.
First as you will see it is fairly fast and easy to tie
The key to it is the 2 different tubes, the front tube is small and stops on the Mono knot and the rear tube is large and slides over the knot.
So you get a great Articulated fly that is very easy to cast and tie.
With all the varieties of colors of Rabbit, Marabou, Hackle and Cones the combinations are endless.
MATERIALS
Front tube: Froden Extra Small tubbing
Black Rabbit
Rainbow Flashabou
Kingfisher Blue Schapplen
The cone is regular cone not a tube cone
Rear Tube: Froden Large tubbing

Great video! We should get the guys at Idylwilde to post it on the facebook/blog page. I have been using your tandem tubes down here on the Eel system with great success the last couple of years. Keep up the good work.

You are a renaissance man Brian. Videographer, guide, tier. Good work. I thought Marty came up with this idea?
