If you check the tying schedule I posted about the Swamp Rabbit you’ll note an “under tail” listed. It’s only there to provide support for that rabbit strip tail - instead of the mono loop most have read about… and it really works. Not only for rabbit, but any soft material like maribou for instance… Preventing the tail from fouling (wrapping around the hook when wet) is a high priority among most tarpon anglers - and the shops that support them…


Done properly the sparse bucktail support blends in with the rabbit or other soft material so well that most don’t notice it…. Unlike that mono loop.

Appreciate the explanation. I’ll \give it a try. Never had much luck with the mono guard myself.
