I know what's wrong

You need to take that gob of eggs off the hook. :hehe:

Just kidding. But I agree above, I have yet to see any trend of deep hooking fish. I must admit, I've only caught a couple handful of fish with tubes. But none have been deeply hooked.

Can't tell you what is happening. By chance you have some sort of smell on your hands (say WD40 or such from your car)? May add the extra scent that adds more of a desire to eat/swallow the fly without biting down on it. Maybe you should lay off the caviar while fishing. You pop a few by accident on the fly and look what happens. :hehe:
