I have all but given up on gravel guards...it became almost a daily occurence to be watching my line swing in and then suddenly see black neoprene floating downstream.
It adds up after a while...
I have been in search of those ones you pull over your boot. They are just sewn together to form one whole gravel guard that you just pull over your boot and up and onto your ankle.
Anyone seen those around?
I might have to try the duct tape though, sounds like a great idea.
