Thanks Sean.

Ron, I would add a few modifications I have made.

#1) I try to use a #6 hook for the embedded (like that usage from Iraq?) to keep the weight down.

#2) I no longer snell the trailer. I push a loop through the eye (a loop to loop connection) and tie down both tag ends and double over and tie again.

#3) I have found a good polar bear substitute in white Arctic Runner (manufactured by The Last Hope, www.lax-a.is) which thins out, so tie it fat.

Leland.
