Kokanee tube fly

Post by Bent hook pontoon » Tue Jun 20, 2017 12:20 pm

I have been making my own Kokanee hoochies. I am calling them Kokanee Kryptonite. I am going to include a link to my YouTube video. Or just open up YouTube and search Kokanee Kryptonite.

Next is going to be a video of how to snell some hooks and rig these things up.
Thanks for looking

This is the follow up video with how I snell and rig up these tube flies for a trolling set up. I have also used them for casting with a bullet weight and snap swivel.

Thanks man, I watched them both as soon as you released them. I enjoyed/ appreciated the vids.... I went and found my old fly tying stuff and some wd40 straws right away!.. btw, looks like you use the same quick snell knot that I do. Never had any problems, but I have noticed heavy 15 pound + fluorocarbon tries to unravel when stored, with or without the glue.

I do use a quick snell. I did have a issue but the glue seems to make the difference for me.
