Tail loop guards

I'm sure many of you either know this technique or even use it on your flies already,but Here's a handy tip to stop that long tail of Raccoon fur,Rabbit zonker, Arctic fox zonker from wrapping itself annoyingly around the hook.

Make a loop with some strong mono,I've used weed strimmer chord here and tie onto the back of the hook or tube like so.

Tie on your raccoon strip or any zonker strip for that matter directly on top of the Loops tie on point.

Here's a popper that was fashioned from that same rig. Click images for larger view.
