    I use prosportfisher pro hook guides and also propeller fly swing tubes, they are both pre tapered , you can easily just use a piece of soft junction plastic also, yes the back of the cone and plastic butt up against each other with water pressure keeping the rig in line too me this is the most efficient hook set up in all of salmon fishing.
    1. The hook is in the middle of the wing which as these flies should be fished square the takes come side on.
    2. Long wings dont tangle in the hook.
    3. It's very quick to change the junction tube color which can impact in the overall color and appearance of the fly.

    I use a composite loop of artic fox for the same reason instead of a disc, bead or dubbing ball, to lift the wing and keep softer hackles open.

    Jerry French does it on his Hoh flies.
