Here is the requested tutorial of the BOB's Minnow adapted into a tube version. I had these pictures taken before I lost my good camera to the Brooks River in AK. The next tutorial will be the "Spey Minnow" previewing in the Orvis News this month. I should have the new Camera by Monday!!! Thanks Greg..
Step#1: Marry a piece of .5 inch extra small Eumer tubing into a 1.5 piece of medium tubing.
Step #2: Attach 6/0 Red Uni thread and wind to rear of medium tubing. A light coat of super glue on the thread at the junction of the two tubes is applied.
Step #3: Tie in clump of natural white Arctic Fox tail. Tail length is roughly the same as tube body.
Step #4: Attach a 3 inch long piece of Small or Medium Pearl Estaz.
Step #5: Wind Estaz to form an even body. Tie down and trim left over estaz leaving roughly a 1/4 inch x-small tubing exposed.
