How to Rig a Tube Fly (Rigging the Trailer-Stinger Hook)

Vodpod videos no longer available.

The video is a little dark, but a close watch or two, will clarify how to rig this up to allow the stinger hook to trail behind the tubing. The trailer hook trails behind because, in this instance, there is a knot that snugs up into tubing at the rear of the fly. This allows the hook to trail behind.This is a different technique than the trailer being attached via doubled over stiff line that is run from the shank to the hook (spey fly, but not tube fly).

Catch Fish w/ Moffitt’s Hookless Fly Sytem (lining, snagging, fair catch?)

F & S Graphic

F & S Graphic

“A radically new idea in fishing is rare. So when ,Pat Moffitt, 56, a retired environmental services engineer, told me he was catching trout with hookless flies, I laughed. After a while, he convinced me that not only was he serious, but he could prove it worked. He and I went steelhead fishing last fall in some Lake Erie tributaries, where I tried his method and was amazed.”

Things do get a little tricky, because Moffitt’s technique hooks fish on the outside of the jaw rather than the inside—a difference of maybe 1⁄4 inch. Some state rules may require fair-caught fish to be hooked inside the mouth, so check before you try this method.”  (my emphasis)

Pegging beads, corkies, flies, a fly…the intent and results count. A stinger hook on a tube fly that trails 2 to 3″ is similar…a 6 to 12″ trailer gives me concern for a hook into the belly or eye. I fish two flies on some stillwaters and occasionally the trailer hooks fish in belly, tail or points in between….One can go to some NW rivers and encounter groups of a certain illegal origin, fishing a pegged bead and 2 split shot spread up the line…running through a pool and purposely lining and snagging salmon. The rig upon inspection could be said to be a pegged bead/egg drifted through and taken…except the hookup is rarely in the mouth but on the outside of the fish..according to the Moffitt concept all fair…but, when witnessed in corrupt hands…it is lining and snagging. Maybe the split shot that allow for a horizontal drift cause this? Well, it does raise interesting questions and Moffitt’s intent seems honorable.

Foxee Prawn for Steelhead (Spey Fly from Charles St. Pierre of Washington State) & The Stinger Hook Setup

St. Pierre's Foxee Prawn

St. Pierre's Foxee Prawn

The fly has the Temple Dog style wing, but kind of in dual form. The body is not smothered by too much palmered hackle fibers and the electrical energy coming off these makes them appear to come with batteries (did I write that?). The fly looks to be pretty aerodynamic and the color combo’s would be interesting.  The wing would not tangle with the stinger hook and the sparkle dubbing puts out light as well.

The flies originator is Charles St. Pierre, the owner of Northwest Speycasting near Seattle, Washington. I shot these just setting on some paper w/ the little Pentax Optio W60 (my tuck in my pocket fishing camera). I didn’t pull out the Macro lens with better lighting for the best affect…to do justice to the patterns.  You get the idea. Arctic Fox, Goat or Temple Dog for the wing will work. Batteries not included.

Stinger Setup for Spey Flies

Stinger Setup (Waddington Shank & Stinger)

Stinger Setup (Waddington Shank & Stinger)The Waddington Shank (double eyed shank) is affixed to the Stinger Hook by Berkeley Fireline (I could be wrong, but I believe the above pic is using a shank with the bend cut off and regular backing material, which was typical until Fireline came to the front...Fireline is stiffer and helps maintain the alignment of stinger to shank.)

Strung Out Leech Technique (Extended Body and trailing stinger)

'Strung Out' Technique

'Strung Out' Technique

“The MOAL was originally designed by northwest steelhead guide Derek Fergus, the Strung Out Leech and the Mother Of All Leeches – MOAL have become a popular new direction in fly fishing circles. The benefit of the S.O. or Strung Out design is the short hook which does not come out as easily during strong battles with heavy steelhead. The Strung Out Series can be adapted to other patterns as well. Northwest Featured fly tyer John P. Newbury has taken the MOAL to a second generation in design.”        http://flyfishnw.com/content/view/97/60/
