Weedless Wacky and Drop Shot Hooks

Recommended Posts

I use the nylon weed guards from the medium size ( 2 strands ) for the wacky rig hooks .

4 strands for the drop shot hooks and smaller finesse wide gap hooks .

1 ) Lay some thread wraps down for a base , flat thread keeps it looking nice and won't bulk up at hook eye .

2 ) Place weed guard material and wrap with flat thread as shown , whip finish with four or five wraps .

3 ) Bend back the fibers with finger to position them and trim to length , I hit the ends with a little heat to round off sharp edges .

4 ) Apply some Hard as Nails and let dry .

I have found these can be bent, splayed , or positioned very easily and have held up for years and so easy to do .
