Tube Flies for Steelhead and Salmon

Tube Flies are tied up on a tube instead of a standard hook shank. They are advantages and disadvantages to a tube fly. The advantages are that the tube is larger in diameter that a hook shank giving the fly a larger profile.

Other advantages are:

  • Easy to replace hook
  • Custom cut lengths
  • Lighter

Disadvantages are:

  • Fly is being pulled through the water from the rear/tail of the fly instead of the head.
  • Takes a little while longer to tie on


Stu's Metal Head Tube, Black/Blue - Product Image

Stu's Metal Head Tube, Black/Blue

Stu Foxall's latest creation is a tube fly utilizing the Pro Sportfisher Ultra Sonic Cones. These cones are made of brass and are slotted. The Ultra Sonic Cone adds some weight to the fly, but is still very easy to lift out of the water due to the venting holes, while maintaining the capability to create a vortex behind the disc, allowing soft materials to swim freely instead of collapsing in hard current.

Very nice tie up. Make sure you take a long some of these on your next Steelhead fishing trip.

Comes with hook.

Quigley's Dragon Gurgler Brown - Orange - Product Image

Quigley's Dragon Gurgler Brown - Orange

The Quigley's Dragon Gurgler - Made to spit water


The Dragon Gurgler wake fly was originally devised by Mr. Bob Quigley.
This the Quigley’s Dragon Gurgler in a Fishmadman tube version – A wake fly with an attitude.
Designed to spit water and to be fished with a stop and go motion. The tube will take a variety of
different hooks and hook settings.


Fish your Dragon Gurgler with the hook up-side-down


Some steelhead anglers prefer to fish the hook upside-down on their Quigley’s Dragon Gurgler –
and to do so in an easy and smart way you may use a so-called egg hook or up-eye hook – as
seen fitted on the fly in the image. The up-eye hook will enable you to get a different angle on the
hook and the low-memory medium soft tubing the Gurglers is tied on, is well suited to
accommodate such a fly fishing method.

This a 50 – 45-millimeter version… or medium – Equivalent to a fly tied on a # 2 – 4hook.

Comes with hook.

riffling hitch system

Two ways to rig this fly:

1. Riffling hitch system - see image above

2. Tie on like regular tube fly - leader down tube, and tie on hook. Push hook up into tube.

In addition to the unique movements, the turbo cone also provides a little bit of weight to help get the fly down. Our Turbo Cone Tube Flies are tied on a 1.25-inch tube with a 10mm turbo cone.

Tube flies that stack.UV2 Versi Tube by Spirit River

Holy Wow...these we a multi staff brainstorm we had and this pattern series has already proven itself. It is a tube fly that is designed to be stacked. Years ago another fly company had this idea....perhaps it was Solitude or Idlewild. But they kinda sucked. Poor execution id say. Just a wad of marabou and a touch of flash. We have added better components, better color combos, .and made them UV2. The color combos are exactly what any avid steelhead fisherman needs.

Two colors: Blue, Purple
