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: This is an attempt to imitate small fish, which fall into hydro power plant turbines or from a waterfall. In my version, braided pearl Mylar tubing and wing built from Serebrjanka fur reflect to each other creating very lifelike image of fly. To prolong "silver part" of belly I painted the shank of the hook with a glimmering nail varnish. As on many of my patterns, I don't use different kind of Crystal hair or Twinkle materials, because they tangle with the fine hair of the wing making it unpleasant. Holographic and coloured Angel hair, different kinds of flat flashabou and transparent ripple flash dyed in different colours over pearl work best for me.

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.
