Question Tube flies and hook connection

I am about to venture into the area of tube flies. Since I can't use weighted flies for Atlantic salmon I intend to start with the Q tip variety for tube material. I am not sure whether you need to secure the hook with a separate plastic sleeve. What is the purpose of this? Should the hook not simply slide up into the hollow tube? I read that some people flare both ends of the tube. I guess that helps to secure the thread. But is it really necessary?
Thanks in advance.
