You don't need any wraps under the weedguard to hold it up. The hard mono will stay more or less where you bend it.

You dont' need to bend it more than perpendicular to the shank. Even if it is out in front a little bit it will keep the fly from hanging up. This will also leave your hook unobstructed. Leave the weedguard a little longer if you want to use it this way.
