This is our own tube fly needle. We had this one made a little longer than ordinary sewing needles… Super quality forged steel ensures that this needle will perform even when tying XXL Bombers and Monster Tube Caddis.
We made the needle for our bigger flies tied on the 1,8-millimeter tubing – You will be able to tie flies with 60-millimeter body (or even bigger)
Wedging the tube to the needle
A good trick is to stick a piece of mono into the eye of the needle…You can vary the size of the mono according to the size of tube you use – I normally use a piece of 0.40-millimeter Nylon… See how I rig needle and tubing here
