    Default A Canadian Flame Thrower

    The Flamethrower seems to be a very popular fly in here yet I haven't seen any on tubes. Thus I offer this as an example of one tied on a Shumakov tube. This was tied by an old friend, Stuart Anderson who owns the Canadian Tube Fly Company and has put a step by step on his web site: www.canadiantubeflies.com
    click on "step by step" on the left of the home page and then click on Flamethrower.
    Not sharing your patterns and tying skills can only be considered a criminal act.

    Default Bless Neil's heart!

    Finally back home from two months on the Chetco River in SW Oregon. When the weather permitted the fishing (fly rod) was extraordinary; and the KING of all flies for fresh winter steelhead was this puppy.

    At least half the fish (maybe more) were on this one pattern; final count I think was 6 landed out of 7 hooked. Not bad, not bad at all. The good news is a 'fresh supply' was waiting for me back here in Ashland.

    Tip of the hat to Mr. S and his creations.
