Homemade Weedguards
#2
Place nylostrand through the hook eye.
#3
Tie down guard on top of hook shank. (A little
super glue helps the process)
#4
Take a pair of pliers and bend the nylostrand
to the shape you wish. Then cut off excess
near the hook point with a pair of wire clippers
If your tying a bend-back or a
"bottom-bouncer" fly sometimes a "V"
shaped weedguard works better.
FOR JIGS:

Start the thread as you would a fly.
Repeat the above steps as you would to tie a
guard onto a fly hook then clip to shape
