Weed Guards

Looking for the perfect material for your weed guards, then look now further than your local gardening center for some weed strimmer cord. It comes in a variety of colours as well as a range of different sizes. I’ve been using Oregon 1,3 mm now for about a year on my poppers and gurgelbugs and have been very impressed with it. Its thick enough to allow your fly to pass under and over obstructions without getting snagged, and yet its subtle enough for it to allow easy hook ups once the pike has it in its jaws and there is now way in hell pike will cut through it with its teeth.

This 15 pack cost me 75 cents from the bargain box near the till. Heavy mono would probably suffice but you know me and what a tight ass I am with my money.
