3 mm Plastic Tubes - Fly Tying Tubes
These are our standard tubes that are used to tie most tube flies. Available in a great variety of colours, including Glow In the Dark (GID) and glitter tubes. The use of these tubes mostly eliminates the need for body dressings, unless the tier fancies a more elaborate body. The tubes are "semi-rigid", which means that they are not so soft that they tend to bend under the strain of casting, but they still have some flexibility which allows the hook to be inserted in the 3 mm tube, without the use of a Junction Tubing.
They are very durable. They can be combined with our 1.8 mm inner-tubes to create small heads or they can be combined with any of our metal tubes, cones or beads. They tubes come in a 10-pack of 20cm (8") long tubes, which will be good for about 50 flies. After trying many different tubes over many years this is what we have settled on as the best all-round tube.
