Silvey’s Tandem Tube – How to Rig It

Posted on March 09 2011

Silvey's Tandem Tube
Worth the effort - it fishes real good.

Installment #3 is a very special episode in our tube fly rigging mini-series by Eric Neufeld.  It’s about a fly called Silvey’s Tandem Tube that requires some special attention in order to perform its best.

Brian Silvey has a series of Idylwilde tube flies – the Tandem Tube, the Tail Light, and the Tube Snake – that all incorporate two tubes.  That gives these flies some special characteristics in terms of how they swim, but rigging them properly requires a bigger loop than you’d normally tie when rigging a tube fly, and it’s a tiny bit confusing the first time you try.

Have no fear, though – if you click the little play button below, Eric will take you through the process, step by step!
