Leaving a Lure on a Fishing Rod

Sometimes we hook our fishing lures onto the fishing rod when we’re storing
them temporarily. I always used to put the hook right into the guide, but
then I got a new tip.

The hook can scratch the loop of the guide then cause a snapped line later.
So instead I now hook the Lure into the triangular support area of the
guide, and not through the loop that holds the fishing line.

Well that explains some of the big ones that have gotten away. Now I know
better.
