Fly Candy

Red/Black, Purple/Black, Dark blue/black are great colour combinations for low light conditions. These were blended out of 3 separate red flash n slinky & slinky fibers and finished of with a splash of black for lateral lines.

Simon-
Is there a reason you use the cones on the front of your tube flies. I do not use them on mine because they cause them to sink too much. I do not know of a tube function they preform.

Cheers Carlos

James,Depending on how deep I'm going to be fishing, or with what line I might use will depend on whether I use metal cones or plastic. I use Plastic cones fished with a floating or intermediate line and metal cones with fast sinking lines. The cones actually keep the front of the fly nicely compact as well as give a little weight which I prefer.
