This is my first attempt at a tube fly and I used materials lying around in my house. The main materials are a cork from a port bottle and an old pen cartridge. This tying sequence is just a basic idea of a tube popper and probably not the most correct way to tie a tube fly. It basically just gives you some ideas regarding the materials you can use for a fly like this and how easy it is to tie it. I hope this inspires you to try this alternative method of fly tying and also see odds and ends lying around in your house in a different light.
