Small Rigid Tubes are also available with a thicker wall (TW), for greater strength and better performance in cold conditions. TW tubes are 3/32 inch OD x 5" long, 10 pk. Requires .031" Pin.
HMH Cut-T-Length Flexible Micro Tubing
Flies can be tied directly onto this tiny tubing, or it can be used to line any other tube that fits a 1/16" mandrel. To use a s a liner, first tie your tube fly. Then take a length of Micro Tubing and heat one end with a flame so that it swells to nearly twice the diameter. Then insert the micro tubing from the rear end of the fly and out through the front. Trim the Micro Tubing about 1/16' longer than the fly and flame the end so that it swells and won't come out.
I love this product. Great colors in a very well made body. Makes tying simpler and easier. Lots of colors to choose from. 25 per pack. I love using these on trout and grayling flies.
Arctic Fox has that natural taper that is a must on tube flies. Dense and lively in the water, Arctic Fox can really make your flies come alive. These tails have gained popularity as a salmon and steelhead fly material, but are equally valuable for trout and saltwater flies as well as for bass, bonefish and redfish.
It has the action of marabou in the water and is much more durable. It finishes a neat, small head on traditional hairwing wet flies. Twist some in a dubbing loop and wrap it underneath marabou or ostrich for intruders, winter tube flies and your other steelhead and salmon favorites.
NOTE: As with all hand dyed natural products, color may vary from lot to lot.

Body Tubing by Fish Skull
Co-developed with Blane Chocklett
Blane Chocklett is widely regarded as one of the best big game anglers, fly tyers, and guides in the world. Chocklett’s Body Tubing is the authentic “secret ingredient” used by Blane in everything from trout flies to musky flies for heads, to segment the bodies, and to keep the materials flared up, allowing them to push more water and have the illusion of bulk — the hollow fly effect — while being light and castable all day.
Length per pack: 1/8" x 3', 1/4” x 3', and 1/2” x 2'
Create a bigger fly body with less materials The more materials you use, the heavier your fly gets, making it harder to cast. Body Tubing creates a ramp for your material to lay against, which flares it out to create the illusion of bulk without using much material, keeping your fly light and easy to cast.
Make your fly push more water The flared materials allow your fly to push more water, making it more likely to attract the attention of your target fish.
Give your streamers longer lives Body Tubing is designed to be tied to protect thread wraps from the teeth of fish. In addition, as the body materials begin to flatten against the body from extended fishing, you can push the tubing forward against the tying materials to flare them back up.
Alternative to reverse-tying for easier body tapering of flies Whether you're tying with deer hair or other fibers, Body Tubing provides a solution to time-consuming reverse-tying.
For use in fresh and saltwater streamer fly patterns of all sizes Body Tubing was made famous for its use in the T-Bone, a large musky fly, but it's a useful material for flies of all sizes. The 3-size range (1/8", 1/4", 1/2") is designed to provide an option for any size streamer fly pattern and to allow for tapering.
