We are continuing here with the amazing Tube Fly creations from the vise of new Contributing Fly Tyer, Jurij (Yuri) Shumakov. You can see more of Yuri's flies at The Flies of Jurij (Yuri) Shumakov. See his notes below.

YURI'S NOTES: Combinations of copper and such colours as rusty orange and orange brown are very good for tea coloured water of rivers, typical for Southern coast of Kola peninsula and Northern coast of White Sea. Use of these colour combinations in fly-dressing has came from Sweden.

For information about the tubes Yuri uses to tie his flies and for more of his patterns, read his article in the Rackelhanen Flyfishing Magazine.
