I'd like to introduce Pete Gray to our forum. Pete is an extremely talented tyer. His specialty is tying tube flys with feathers.

You can find Pete casting his flys to stripers on Cape Cod. Besides his wonderful creations, Pete has an incredible sense of humor. His posts always make me laugh.

Pete was immediately on board with sharing his designs with us. If your not familiar with tube flys, or don't have a lot of experience with feathers, you are in for a treat.

If we are really lucky, Pete will post one of his step by step patterns for us. I'm going to start the thread with one of Pete's designs.

Harvey

Wow. Thanks Harvey for introducing us to another truly talented tyer. I wish I had the time to sit at the bench and practice enough to create flies/ teasers like you guys put out. You are all very talented "artists".

I sent Pete the link to the thread. I'm sure he will begin uploading pictures in the next day or two. It will be worth the wait - I promise.

Default 'dual tube phly...

When Harvey says JUMP... the only appropriate reply should be... HOW HIGH ?!
G'day from the windy shores of Kape Kodistan...

note: primary material tube and secondary junction tube [moves the hook forward and down to shift the centre of mass improve tracking and motion]...


















Cheeerz
Peeete

Pete,

Not sure which is better - the phlyz or the photography. Great stuff. Thanks for uploading your designs for all to share. I believe the members are in a state of awe and will be commenting shortly.

On a personal note, I'm very jealous of the vises you own. Top of the line tools for over the top phly tying.

Harvey

Default Oh my goodness!

What an education I am getting. I had no idea about these different methods in creating flies. Keep posting and I will keep reading with appreciation.

Thank you for sharing.

Neil
