Boa tubes

Here's an assortment of Boa Tubes. It is a multi-species/multi-function pattern. Boa yarn is available at many craft stores and is available both solid and multicolored.

Tube: Eumer 13mm or 17mm Ballhead Tube, with liner and junction

Tail: Marabou or Arctic Fox body

Body: Boa yarn, also called eyelash yarn

Topping: Sparkle Scale Flash

Head: Ice Dub or Palmer Chenille

For steelhead, I like the length of the ball tube and junction to be 1 1/2" to 2". The Daiichi #1640 in size 2 is the perfect hook for this pattern.
