had 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
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. Thanks

Isnt this the "ultra rig"? This is what French/Ward/et al. came up with when they were scheming up their whole skagit stuff. I think they used tubing from speaker wire initially. As far as I know, the "ultra rig" from aqua flies is the commercially sold way to do this.

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.
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!
