Tube Fly Recipe

I have had several requests for the recipe of the tube fly from a post several days ago. The Fox Tail streamer is now officially called the Arctic Fox Wiggler and here is the recipe:

Tube: Eumer Ballhead 17mm

Tail: Arctic fox tail fur 2-3 inches long, mix in 4-6 strands of Krinkle Mirror Flash

Body: Estaz

Collar: 4 turns of schlappen hackle with 4 turns of Palmer Chenille in front.

This fly has great action and movement in the water! Here is an assortment of colors. More testing to come!
