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: Such a combination of colours works very good for fresh running salmon in Norway and Kola Peninsula Northern coast. The cone head balances the heavy hook and keep the silhouette of the fly in a most natural shape.

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.
