But, we have made hooks weedless in similar fashion for a very long time especially when flyfishing.
You don't need wire either. Stiff mono guards can work too.

I think a gutters trip next full moon tides might be in order Carl.going to give the drifted senkos a whirl when i get back on the island keith, a packet of salt n pepper got delivered just before leaving, i popped a mustad 4/0 bass hook thru it and pegged it with a cocktail stick as you described it looked perfect, next up stoopid when my order comes, thanks for sharing this info with us.
Could be interesting - just rigged up a load of assist hooks for my small metals for Ireland using 60Lb hollowcore loops - dead easy to do ...Alex:
If you are in an experimental mood.....
I'm working on a weedless twin single hooked senko rig that still uses the hitch hiker but....
Has 2 weed guarded assist hooks so they lie 1/4 and 1/3rd back accordingly.
It's just a spark of an idea but I will try it.
What do you think ?
