Default Re: Mono weed guards

Those are some fine looking bugs. Beautiful paint job.
However,I see a couple of problems.
The major one is the space between the body and the the hook point, especially on the bottom two. You'll need a wider gap to guarantee a hook up.
The reasoning behind using the stinger hooks is to have the widest gape possible
Also, I think you'll want to lash the weed guard further down on the hook bend
I do mine about halfway
