Tube Flies

Greetings all! I know many of you on this board, and hope to make the acquaintance of others.

So is anybody tying/fishing tube flies? I'm just getting into this and am "discovering" that there's a lot to be done on the subject--why, for instance, aren't there any designated tube fly singles out there?

I'm most curious about anyone's experiences comparing their hooking/landing ratio with tubes vs dressed hooks? Do short shanked hooks like the Tiemco 105 make a differnce on whether fish come unbuttoned?
