The Aqua Flies tubes are formulated from a temperature stable polyethylene, meaning in near freezing conditions the tubes will not break. With a large selection of colors to choose from, you can give your tube flies a new look.
The 1.8mm (1/16” OD) is the right size to tie trout flies or lightweight steelhead flies, such as marabou tubes. Whether you tie a fly directly on the tubing or use it as a liner for metal tubes or weights, this tubing is very versatile.
The 3mm (1/8” OD) outside diameter tube makes a great platform for tying larger steelhead flies, such as Intruders or saltwater streamers.
The inside diameter of the 3mm will accept the 1.8mm tube perfectly. Add a cone to your fly by using the 1.8mm tube as a liner for the 3mm tube. A drop of super glue will hold the smaller tube in place, but to make for a more secure fit, cinch down on the tying thread so the larger tube is bound down onto the 1.8mm tube. Hold the cone in place by holding a flame close to the end of the tube so it melts slightly and creates a collar.
