The Canadian Tube Fly Company
NEW FOR 2017
We believe in presenting a multitude of products that
suite the
imagination and creativity of tube fly tyers.
You will not find specific, one way thinking tube fly
"systems" on our site. Instead we present several
different tube styles and materials that put the
imagination back into tying tubes!
SNOW RUNNER FUR
EXTRA LARGE GUINEA
EGRET LANYARDS
INDIAN CAPES & SADDLES
This fur also has the all-to-imortant,
natural taper that allows your tube to have
the classic temple dog style wing. Not
only a winner for  Scandinavian style
wings but also great for fantastic salt
water patterns.
SPECKLED SCANDINAVIAN TUBE
This new Speckled Scandinavian tube is
remarkable! When extruded a large amount of
glitter is added directly into the hot plastic.
This makes a tube that is a bit bumpy to the
feel but has the great attribute of never losing
the glitter. Many tyers are now using this
tubing to make some fantastic looking bodies
on their tube flies!
INTRUDER GRIZZLY 1/2 SADDLES
MALLARD HEN
GREY GOOSE SPEY
Our Large Grey Goose that has
been chemically treated and then
re-moisturized is just that.
Finally a spey feather that has
the "burnt" look to the hackle
barbs but not the dried out stem.
No need to soak these little
beauties before you wind them on!
If you have ever had a full skin of
Guinea Fowl, you will know that
there are a few choice hackles on the
skin that are really big, but are not
yet a thick, quilled feather. These
select, extra long feathers are between
3 to 5 inches in length!
NATURAL SCHLAPPEN
We have found a fantastic supply of
natural schlappen feathers. These
plumes are not processed at all, except
for a wee shampoo. The natural
colours on these feathers are fantastic
for collars, palmering, or any other
uses that process schlappen is used for.
These half saddles are fantastic for
any pattern that uses a thin feather.
We love them for tying Intruders,
streamers, and bait fish imitations.
The barred look of the grizzly really
makes minnow patterns come alive
with a very realistic looking lateral
line when in the current.
We are always on the hunt for
feathers that are often overlooked by
the larger flytying industry
suppliers. These mallard hen feathers
have beautiful markings of
alternating dark and lite bars!
We used to clip forceps, nippers, a
line of tippets, etc. directly onto our
fishing vest. This often slowed us
down getting ready and "suiting up"
for a day on the river. These
lanyards make everything so easy!
All your fishing tools are at your
chest and go on with ease.
COCKTAIL SPEY PLUMES
Cock Tails are huge! Too often spey
feathers end up having too short of
a section to use before one ends up
with either a stem that is too thick
or brittle to wrap on a hook or a
tube. Definitely not a problem with
these feathers that have (on
average) six inches of wrappable
stem!
If you have been tying for some time, you
have probably seen Indian Capes before. They
are often the forgotten feathers found in
discount bins of your local shop. I think most
tyers, especially if you started tying as a kid
probably started with Indian feathers for one
major reason....... the huge difference in cost!
GOOSE SHOULDERS FOR
MARRIED WINGS
DYED OVER BRONZE
SCHLAPPEN
We are big fans of dying over natural colours!
There is a good deal of tying that needs intense
colours, though often forgotten, is having flies
that have a hint of colour and still resemble
something more natural. These dyed over bronze
schlappen are just that.
Married wings can be a beautiful addition
to any salmon or steelhead pattern!
These goose shoulder feathers have been
selected to be almost free of stress marks
(the flaws on feather fibers that can make
them hard to marry).
