About Body Fibre.

Have taken a bit easier with getting all my stuff on right places here at home now so there has been also some fly tying while I have checked out what material I have in stock and what materials should be ordered. Watched a tying movie from Youtube here the other day and even if I´m suffering with a VERY !!!! Slow internet connection at the moment I got some inspiration from it (again) It was Niklaus Bauer who tied a fly called transformer fly on tube. On the first one I tried to follow the recipe using SF-blend,on the second one I added some Body Fibre on it´s belly and two latest is tied with only Body fibre and I have to say that I´m very pleased with the result. Not too long ago I was a natural maniac but after I bought this fantastic material I have start tying also syntethics witch give me more options in tying. Body fibre is a material.....don´t know how to describe it but it´s near Slinky Fibre but softer,and it has a natural glow so I have often tied them without any flash. It also have a very nice movement in water if you compare with Slinky. I can really recommend this product to all of you tying Pike flies.I use to buy mine from a shop called Nordic Angler were you can find many more products that you´re not able to get from other stores in Finland,like Bug Bond for example. Here is two latest ties.First one is some kind of traditional color combo. For the second fly I used a color combo from Finlandia lures Nils Master wobbler color 03 and I have some big expectations on this one.

  1. Hello Johan, very good words and flies, I've never tried tube flies pike. Does it work?

  2. Hola David,got so little experience so I dont know for sure yet but one´s for sure is tat you got more options to choose what kind of hook you wanna use (barbless,long or short shank).
    I have a feeling that I have dropped more fishes with tubes but the reason for that is not absolutely caused by tubes.

  3. Hello Djuza, nice work. I still haven’t got my tube fly kit, but there’s a big fly fair in Belgium in about a month and a half where I will certainly buy one, so after that, you can teach me all about it (if you have a camera and if your internet connection works as it should). I’m really looking forward to that!
