It doesn't really, you have the tube you tie the fly on, and then a larger softer tube, like what you use with your fishtank stuff that slips just over the end of the tube. The eye of the hook will rest in there and hold in place just enough with the right tube to let go and slide up the line when you hook a fish. I have some smaller salmon fly hooks where the eye will ride inside the larger tube diameter with just enough resistance to work well. With a streamer pattern that you are moving a lot, I don't think it would matter much since the hook would be pushing the fly around.
