Weed Guards ?

Most of the time I do not use a weed guard. When I have tied flies with them I've always used a loop of mono tied in at the rear of the hook looped to the hook eye. Today I used a fly that was no longer weedless because it had sat in a fly box for a while and the mono took a set leaving the point exposed. Quite annoying and ineffective.

So I have to ask; What do you use for a weed guard, and what are the pros/cons of that method?
