Jay Nicholas demonstrates how to tie a Copper Miner Tube Fly for Salmon and Steelhead. This tube flies color combination is often over-looked but can be very effective. The flashabou hackle for the fly was inspired by Scott Howell’s Prom Dress fly pattern. Jay uses Pro Tube Fly System parts for the tube and hook guide on the finished fly.
