a loop (with some hard mono) to keep the tail from fouling
Yes I have some of these tied with fish I mean weed guards. Some times I get fed up with weed guards and just cut them off. It depends on what Kind of a mood Im in, and of course wheather I was lucky enough to get it just right when I put the weed guard on the fly.
It sure is nice to be able to throw the fly up in the sticks though
