Bifu PRO Tube

Since the advent of the first tube flies, around 1945 in England, tube flies have been slowly gaining a place in the boxes of fly fishermen around the world, not only for salmon fishing, but also have expanded to the most diverse species.

This slow invasion and acceptance among the fishermen is due to the slow discovery that each fisherman makes on the great advantages that the tube flies provide, among which the possibility to change the hook in case of is in bad condition or when the species to Fishing or the size of the possible catch requires it, the possibility of using short hooks and in this way to minimize the possibilities of disengagement during the fight, the possibility that the fly does not break during the fight in the case of fish that usually do it … but the most remarkable and the one that led Mrs. Morawski to the idea of a salmon-fly tube or to the famous Richard Waddington to develop his particular tying style that would be popularized as Waddington flies, was the need to separate the characteristics of the Fly to the hook, thus opening up a whole new horizon in the development of flies that would no longer depend on size, length, weight and other characteristics of his prison called “HOOk”, since this is completely relegated from the structure of the tied.

materialesFor what has been said until now it is understood why in the last decades has used tube flies as a solution to certain fishing techniques, today the use of tube flies for many marine species, for anadromous species and for large freshwater predators is common.

In this article I present a fly born of a necessity … that of tempting a sea colossus that enters every year in many rivers of Chile and Argentina, famous not only for its great size and sporting potential but also for the difficulty that presents Catching him with a fly equipment, we’re talking about his lordship the Salmon King, King Salmon or Chinook.

The Bifu is a fly that has a few years but is by far the most result gave us with these difficult fish … here I present it in the 5 models that I consider indispensable if we want to have one of these marvels at the end of our line.
