Nice report as usual, Keith where do you get the weedless hooks from? Those things look awesome, plus there the type of hook that might help reduce snagging in a few area I've been fishing (when I've had the chance that is!). Got a spot that I wouldn't mind trying for the Bream, problem is I had to drift over a massive weed bed first and can make things a bit tricky in a yak, tried and tested catching Bream with the reins paddle tails and they work a treat, but it wasn't using light gear and it was on a boat, really wished I brought my lighter kit when I went!

Just dropped an order through AGM after reading the blog article - got an evening of tying tonight so will see if i can make up some mono weed guard hooks - will probably go for a double prong upright approach ...

Hoping to find some current over in Cobh harbour to try all this out on!

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 ?

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.

The ones pictured in the article are from ****'s.
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.

Search around the web for stuff like this...

Nice one Keith, I shall be getting some of those later next week, then I might play about with my own once I've seen the setup.

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 ...

Hmm you will have to illustrate the idea with a diagram - I am guessing you don't want the weedless assist hooks free hanging and need to be pinned somehow to the worm? Otherwise I can imagine tangling when you trot the worm down the flow ...
