Eumer Tube Fly Contest.

Eumer has introduced a new contest for all tube fly tyers. Themes will be posted on their Facebook page and you can check out the complete rules on the Eumer Contest page. http://eumertube.com/Tube_Fly_Contest.php

There are a few entries up already on the Facebook page to check out. The winner gets a shiny new tube fly vise.

Good luck!


Eumer Classroom

Eumer has the right idea by putting the pro-staff to work and supporting its product with instruction. Start your education by going to http://eumertube.com/classroom.php. Eumer offers a vast array of tubes that may be confusing or even intimidating to the uninitiated tyer. Video and images are available in the classroom to help guide students to the correct use of each type. Some other basic tasks such as mounting the hook in the tube, using the tube vise and adding cones are also covered.

In addition to the basics, there is also fly tying instruction. The tying classes are divided into 3 skill categories and let the tyer choose form a good selection of tube patterns to mimic. Get schooled.



Todd Scharf Intruder Style Steelhead Flies

I met Todd a few years back at the Western Canadian Fly Fishing Exposition in Calgary. He runs Upstream Adventures, a guiding service and fly shop and ties some of the most incredible spey flies. He has a gallery page set up on the site, but I have seen many more flies and this just begins to cover some of his creations. You can view his page of flies he ties on tubes and shanks – http://www.upstreamadventures.com/toddflies.php. Todd uses some interesting materials including seal, polar bear, dyed white peacock, lady Amherst tail, and Rhea that he dyes himself to achieve the wide variety of colors he uses. The gallery is worth a look.
