FINALLY, THERE'S A WEEDLESS MUSKIE HOOK WORTH USING!!!
These snagless adaptations are INDIVIDUALLY HAND TIED and not mass produced!!! The wire guage for the tension loaded guards is selected by shank length of each hook type. Strands are then tied and cemented on and shrink tubed. The guards rest near the tip of the barb and are not stowable like our bucktails and flies due to distance limitations, FYI.
Add them to baits when you need them, just split ring on and off. THE POSSIBILITIES ARE ENDLESS!
