Here are some advantages streamer tube flies have over hook-tied flies versus game fish

  • Reduce short-strikes.
  • Smaller hooks can keep big flies lighter.
  • Eliminate leveraging a fish has with a hook-tied fly.
  • Flies last longer.
  • Change out damaged hooks quickly.
  • Change the orientation of a hook.
  • Make casting big, bushy flies a lot easier.
