How durable is the wrap?
Type 1 wrap mesh is made of nylon. It is strong and can withstand multiple bites by fish that do not have razor teeth. Type 2,3 wraps are stronger. Our Double Wrap is even stronger.
How do you hook the wrap?
After injected bait into the wrap, close the wrap with the hook by inserting the hook at the edge of one corner of the open end of the wrap. Then insert the hook through the other edge of the open end of the wrap. This closes the open end and traps the bait inside. Finally, insert the hook through the middle of the wrap. You are ready to fish.
