    Default yuri claret and pink







    i wasnt sure wether tying such a long body on a yuri tube was a good idea but only realised this after the tying

    still whats the forums opiion on this. is this length of body o.k or should the wing be kept close to the flueted shape of yurri's design.


    i finnished it off anyway as i quite liked the overall style.
    b.r speers.

    Last year I tried something similar (wanting to add a tail to Shumakov style flies but ran into a problem during the Spring with cold water making the stiff liner brittle. Having the cone so far away from the body gave a leverage point and I had 6 flies snap right at the base of the LR Tube within the space of a couple of hours.

    In warmer water it doesn't seem to happen.

    I now have a new method which I have been playing with which looks very promising. It allows you to have any length of body when using a LR Tube.

    I am at work at the moment but will get some pictures up later tonight.

    Nice fly by the way.

    i dont always put one on,,, but as it has quiet a long body past the yuri tube, i.e plastic tube, i put a cone head on to balance it up, and give some turbulence to the wing materials.

    Hi Speers, You tie a nice fly.
    I'm trying to understand why you are tying a body on the plastic liner of a Shumakov tube.
    Was not the tube itself intended to be the body without any dressing(only paint in the rings) and the liner to be used for the wing and hackles?
    Will the fly not fish very much tail down as all the weight is at the rear of the fly?
    If you need a tail could you not tie one in using one of the rings as a base?

    Please do not think I am being critical of your fly, just trying to understand the reasoning behind this particular dressing.

    Tf.

    believe me teirboy i think you are mostly correct on this and i tied this fly without thinking and then realised and finnished it off,

    yurri's tubes i think are shaped this way to splay the wing hackle out via turbelnce , and as such should be kept close to the tube,

    i posted this fly as an question to other forum members to see what they thought of the fly and this particular aspect of it, i did counter balance the weight with a cone so you never no,

    if it doesnt swim it will get stripped,, eur errr
