only wish he would have showed it with wall behind it rather then his beard, it was too dark for my eyes to see the detail. It all sounds real good, will have to try it.

When I wacky a Senko, I put a piece of 3/8" electric heat shrink tubing on it and use a 4/0 Octopus hook with added weed guard made of braided stainless steel leader wire.
