A bright Scandinavian style salmon fly tied on a tube using an easy, divided wing technique
That's all very good... yet another tube fly? Très bien... mais oui, that's exactly what it is: very good.
This is another bright tube fly for clear water designed by Danish fly tyer Ken Bonde Larsen. And another one that uses a cone to add weight to the front of the fly. And another one, where the metal cone can be replaced by a common head or a plastic cone.
And this is another tube fly that demonstrates the use of a sectioned hair wing tied in in several steps with a hackle to separate the sections. The hackle adds volume and support for the wing, and also gives extra fluff to the front hackle, since the wing-dividing hackle sits very close behind the front of the fly.
This technique is very useful for all hair winged flies. Splitting the wing into typically three sections not only makes it easier to tie it in, but also enables you to form a nicer and better tapered wing. You can use different colors for each section and the technique makes it possible to add flash and hackles in the wing - between the sections. The method is not only for tube flies, but can of course be used on hooks too.
