    I find that if I tie a robust/stiff hackle collar near the hook point it serves pretty darn well as a weed guard. I can gingerly pull it out of pads and weeds without snagging. I think old time bass bugs were tied this way to get a degree of weedless-ness. Its soft enough to get a good hookset during the chomp, yet shields the point just enough through the weeds.

    Thanks for all of the tips. I got the one's like what Patrick found at Fred Meyer. Those should work really good for the pond I'm basically tying for.
