Has anyone used heat shrink tubing to keep the wire on the extended hook stiff?. Having an issue with hooks flipping back and tangling in fly body. Thanks
I'm thinking shrink tubing would be OK in the elements as I have buried the stuff on larger wire. Can only try and see. Harbor Freight has the small stuff on sale. Thankshad this same thought the other day. mostly concerned with how long the shrink tube would last in the elements.
finding tubing for DIY ultra tubes is cheap enough that I just do that with shank flies
Much better price than intruder wire. Performance is about the same. I like it better than stiff braid like fire l8ne.
And clearly neither are you! Not being a smart ass just offering a different solution to the problem. I also see some people are literally telling him to use the rubber hook keepers that you would use on a tube fly anyways!These are the type of answers that piss people off, the question was about trailing hooks, if you like tube flies then move on without leaving a smart ass answer, you're not funny or clever.
