Very nice flies, these tiny tubes are interesting (y) Are they loaded or just plastic?

Stunning flies, I'd fish them all with confidence. The top ones have been a winner for me this season.

All the flies look great but the top ones look brilliant to my eye. I have watched your sbs on them loads of times but yet to try one. I dont have a black and white badger but I do have a black and brown badger and all black so wondering if you think either of them would be a reasonable substitute ?

Great flies!

Decided to try my hand at a few. As I said I dont have the badger capes but used a black hackle instead. My jungle cock capes are nearing the end too so having to uv resin the nails to try and make them whole! Anyway these actually look very much like the tailfire fly that I still use a lot. Only difference is in the body and the gp tippet. (I added this in 2 of the 3). I've used wormo's video a lot for this pattern, watched it loads of times so thanks for the help wormo!

Editing to say sorry for the awful pics but the light had gone and my artificial light obviously isn't any good for these pics!
