I always use either soft rubber or shrink wrap when tying on hooks to a tube fly. Even before the advent of tube flies when we usedWaddington shanks ialways tied mono between the body and hook to keep in line with the fly. It's really up to the tyer ,however,how long they want to make the rubber sheath over the hook
All my Tubes are fitted with soft tubing on the butt end ,now tend to use doubles rather than trebles ,and atach my hook to tippet using tucked blood Knot ( I know there are slightly better knots but its not let me down yet ):smokin:
