About the Tube Red and Yellow Salmon Atlantic Fly
A bright and vibrant fly for use in coloured water when the fish need all the help they can get to see the fly.
Brass tubes are very popular for Salmon fishing in heavy water in Icelandand the rest of the world. These tubes will sink very well and are therefore heavy for casting. Preferable to use on double handed rods or large single handed rods. The 1” tubes are very good all summer but the 1 ½” in heavier water in spring and floods.
Some fishermen prefer lighter tubes tied on Aluminium tubes, there fore the most popular tubes are also tied on aluminium tubes. These are much easier to cast with single handed rods but will not sink as well. Dr. Jonas Jonasson
