    I use free swinging tubes, just by using a piece of tubing over the hook past the eye. only on coneheads though tied on tube liner.

    Cycling shops will have yds of the stuff, but it won't be some of the trendy more fluro. colours useful on the back end of Salmon tube, but functional and certainly more robust.Coarse fishing tackle shops will have an absolute bundle of the stuff in a great variation of sizes and colours.
    If you're no where near either, then W H Smiths and a copy of Coarse Fishing or Match Fishing magazines will see various on line dealers who can help with on line ordering.

    Where might I get the extension tubing featured in the picture. It's not the coil of yellow stuff, that's all i've been able to find of late and t's too thin walled. It was bought from AA ( Silicone Tubing) The other samples are thicker walled and Opaque and grip the hook better. I got it many years ago and now have none left.
    Try Flymakers 2.0mm silicone extension tubing. Its thicker walled and the Yellow and Orange are opaque like what you have in your picture
