Default Re: Weed guards

This is the first time I have tried them. They can be trimmed to length and used with a lot of hook sizes, The bugger I tied is a size 2 hook. I just bent it to shape and tied it in, Then bent it away from the hook to give me room to tie. I am still experimenting so it is a learn as I go kinda thing. I have found some nice fish in thick lily pads and need something to get at them. If I come up with any brain storms I will post them.

Hey BigJim Where in Md? I am in Delaware but my favorite bass waters are the tidal rivers on the eastern shore. I fish the Pocomoke and the Nanticoke often, I also chase some trout and stripers on the bay. You have some very nice looking flies and I have got a few ideas from them for my next ties and will post when I get a few more tied.
