Question Tube Flies

Hi fellows,

I noticed that a lot of you tie and use tube flies. I've just begun to experiment with the concept and have used some tube flies in my warmwater fishing. I was using offset bait hooks as I had seen recommended on one of the Alaskan Steelhead sites. Sometimes I left the hook loose and sometimes I used little sections of plastic tubing to fix the hook in position. I found the flies effective but I missed a lot of hook-ups. I suspect that the offset in the hook may be responsible for the high percentage of missed strikes. What do you fellows suggest? I'm ready to tie up a batch of flies for winter steelhead here in Southern Ontario.
Thanks,
Don
