Mono weed guards
Okay guys and gals, I am making poppers the past couple of days. I am applying a single weed guard. Does anyone have a good method for this? I wrapped the back of the hook with the mono...came up under the hook...brought the line up through the eye of the hook...burnt the end with a lighter...pulled it in...while it was still hot I used a bodkin and made sure the eye was open, then I wrapped the thread over the line right behind the eye of the hook with thread. Is there a better way, or will this do it? I have only done ONE so far, so I have had virtually no experience with this.
As long as I get a bite, I don't want to leave!
