Homemade Weed Guards?

Recommended Posts

Do any of you make your own weed guards for hooks or jigheads?  I have found a longshank llightweight jighead that I like alot but I cannot find any with a weedguard installed.  Have any of you used wire etc to make your own before and if so what and how?   Im really needing something to put on a light, long shanked jig head (1/16oz) that will be used for swimming various lures in and around laydowns.

You can use mono tied to the shank of the hook then out the eye to form a 90 degree wrap it with thread to put it in position or loop the tag and wrap it around the bend once then tie back to the shank. They make weedless flies in the same way. Plan B would be to wrap the wire behind the eye with thread and then push the wire through the eye and bend it in position.
