Tubeology Tube Fishing Advantages
Tube fishing has significant advantages over traditional lures. This is because of 2 distinct reasons:
Better Hook Positioning
With a tube based lure you can use hook retainer to position the hook at the end of the lure. This means that there is far less change of tail biting than with a traditional lure. With better hook positioning streamers like zonkers and hairwings can have the hook positioned rights at the tail end of the lure.
Better Hook Usage
With a Tubeology tube based lure you can use any hook you like, however key is that you do not need to use a large lure that puts fish off attacking a lure, indeed with a hairwing or zonker type lure you can use a smaller more discrete hook.
A Tube Fly, Spinner or Flying C is a fixed system. This means that if you fish a deeper pool you need to swap weight of the lure to get deeper, if light conditions change or water "colours up" then you must again swap lure. It is well known that fluorescent orange shows up better in coloured peaty water for example. As a consequence you must take traditional fixed lures in each colour you wish to try, that is the old fashined way!
With Tubeology you simply swap coneheads, with 9 weights, 6 sizes and 6 colours you can immediately get 54 variations of the same lure simply swapping the conehead.
With Tubeology you keep your lures seperate from the hooks, this means les spagetti tangles or lures, you can swap from double hooks to barbless, singles or trebles as conditions and local rules legislate. Hooks can be kept in a seperate box from the luresmeaning they do not get damaged in transit and last longer and finally you can use less Tube based lures but get far more variation of patterns because of Tubeologies modular system.
Because a fish cannot lever against the lure or even a large salmon hook there is more chance of landing the fish. You can use smaller size 12 double hooks in preference to a large size 4 salmon hook for example. Because only the hook stays in the fishes mouth and the tube based lure slides away then you are more likely to catch more fish.
Because Tubeology is based on a tube you can replicate baitfish better. Traditional hook based lures mean that larger hooks are needed to imitate larger fish. These larger 'butcher' hooks are difficult to cast and stop the natural movement of the lures. With Tubeology a lure looks far more streamlined like a traditional baitfish for predatory species.
