Spinning tube flies

Every now and then I come across a fly tyer that literally blows me away,and Raymond Noordermeer from the Netherlands is one of them. All these Tube flies are tied onto stainless steal coil tubes with spinning rods in mind. To be truthful I'm lost for words to describe the sheer brilliance of these practical works of art.....fly porn at its best! Raymond has a blog which isn't open to the public yet but as soon as it is you'll all be the 1st to know about it.In the mean time you can visit his Picasa web albums here Thanks for letting me feature your flies Raymond I'm sure you'll be hearing a lot from me in the coming months mate.

Definitely one of the best Dutch (and also outside of the Netherlands)fly tyer's I have ever seen.

Wellknown because of his own style as can be seen in this article.

Nice knowing you Raymond!!!!

Well worth showing Raymond his masterpieces here Simon, although you can't throw these beauties with you flyrod.
Hear from you soon Raymond,

"El Raymundo" has arrived. Not only one of best pikefly tyers from the Netherlands, but also a very helpfull and friendly guy, who spreads "the tying word" and infects a lot of newbies and oldies. Nice Tubes, Raymond,but you already knew that. Can't wait to see more of them!
Keep on spinning!
