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: Modern pattern. This is one of my favourites for such rivers of Southern coast of Kola peninsula as Varzuga, Strelna, Chapona and Chavanga. See Rear Section for detail.

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.
