Kush, thats after a season of fishing. I'm ashamed of mine then.

Dave, While I haven't fished with boobies, one technique I've used with Turcks tarrantulas & unweighted mudddlers is to use a sinker on the leader to get them subsurface. In slower water stripping in the line up raises the fly in the water column then stopping causes the fly to sink. It drove a number of LM Bass to think the fly was escaping from them.

H'mm you could try that with a combo of cone headed & booby buggers and dispense with the weight on the line.
