Seems like the tubing is going too far into the bend of the hook. Rather, I should say that I don't take my tubing that far into the bend of the hook.

No jdaddy your wrong with that one there is plenty of bend left to hold a fish. I don't like taking it any shorter. Either way will work. Its basically a preference. I'm sure the ones you tie shorter catch fish.

I don't care for the general patterns you tie, but I like the wire-in-tube's look, and I'm not sure if I've ever bothered to notice it before. Probably because regardless of effectiveness, these sorts of flies offend my tender sensativities.

That said, jdaddy's right. Your body goes too far down.

When I first looked at the pics, my thoughts were the same as gfen and Jdaddy. In my experience, you drop alot of fish when theres only 1/8th of an inch of bend. But I dont care. tie em how you like.

I have never lost a fish with them tied like this. That's just an excuse for guys not being able to control their fish.

You use those little flies for steelhead,tarpon,salmon and other"Hard to control" fish found in Pennsylvania waters?
Impressive-but wouldn't a nymph have to rigor mortis to be in that position-just asking.
