Spring Salmon Tube Flies

 

A selection of early season tubes dressed on Gray's Needle Tubes

by John Gray

The Willie Gunn and Black and Yellow are very effective salmon fly patterns, popular with early season salmon fly anglers. They are often dressed on a range of tubes, of different lengths, materials, weights and densities, giving flies for all conditions likely at the start of the season. A small selection of such early season tube flies is shown below, dressed on Gray's Needle Tubes, fine stainless steel tubes with an outside diameter of only 1.8 mm.
