Scandi style tube fly step by step.

 The other week, i was sent some of the tube make products by the Pro Sportsfisher Co, a company that is bring out some great products for fly tying.  above you can see some of the items they sent me, so will show you my take on a Scandi type style tube fly.
 Above i push the tube on the needle, of my tube tying vise.
 Now catch in the thread, here i am using Danville 70 denier white thread. and tie in the medium silver oval tinsel for tag.
 Above, i have wound on the tinsel. and tie off the thread.
 Now i tie in the tail, for this i am using pink marble fox Guard  hairs.
 Now trim off the unwanted hair,
 Now i use some pink gliss and glint dubbing.
 Now i use more gliss and glit dubbing, color silver doctor blue.
 Above, i have tied in the grizzly saddle hackle.
 Above i have wound back the grizzly hackle, and wound back up the tube. the oval tinsel to lock in the hackle,
 Above i have trimmed off the unwanted materials.
 Now i have pushed on a counter weight, which will also act like a pillow to hold up the next hackle.
 Next, i use a dubbing brush, to pull out some of the dubbing. so that it shows though the hackle,
 Now tie in a pink saddle hackle,
 Above i have cleaned up the hackle,
 Next, tie in the first under wing, i have used pink marble fox.
 Now tie in some pink krystal flash.
 Now tie in the forward part of flash,
 Now tie in the middle wing, i have used silver doctor blue marble fox.
 Again i tie in flash, this time silver doctor blue flash.
 Again pull back over the top, the flash and tie off.
 Now i catch in the front hackle, silver doctor blue.
 Above, i have wound on hackle, and cleaned up tie.
 Now i tie in the top wing, this time Purple marble fox.
 Now i tie in there jungle cock, have to say. these are very good made of a soft plastic, and they do a number of colors and sizes. 
 Now i push on there vented disc, these in water when worked in the river. work the material very well and leave a stream of small bubbles in the water, look very alive for sure.
 And above the finished tube, i have trimmed the tube rear to the size i wanted. for hook and trimmed the front of tube. and melted the tube so that it burrs up to hold disc,
Hope you like the fly, and the step by step. of this style of tube fly, it is about 11/2" long i use these in high water conditions, better than spinning for sure. and the Wilkinson colors catch a lot of fish,
