You take nylon rope and cut to fit the jig you are tying. 1/32 weeder will be smaller that say a 1/8 or larger. Cut it about 1/2 inch or smaller, in length. Put the already tied jig in your holder and proceed to wrap with a half hitch to start with and completely wrap with some acrylic nail polish hardner in between the wraps. Finish it up with a whip stitch and touch it up with some acrylic or cement to bond it together. They are durable and be sure to not tie it to thick, or as I did and explained in my post you will miss fish! :( It really helps and I have found this to be the only way to fish in heavy cover. You could use a slip cork but that just gets in my way! Hope this helps you and you can email me for more info and I could try to send you some pics of completed jigs.
