Default Re: Mono weed guards

I put the mono through the eye, give it a few wraps and trim. Then finish wrapping, tie off and run a hot bodkin through the eye to melt the mono


I've found the a single mono guard doesn't last long if you fish in heavy cover, so I always tie in two.
When one gets bent out of shape, you can cut it off and still be good to go
Two 20# loops aren't anymore of a problem when hooking fish than a single one.
