pretty darn-nice Hopper Legs

via In The Riffle

i’ll leave out the video title’s extraneous superlatives and get to the point: this is a very nice and simple way to get big, fat, juicy-sexy legs for all your grasshopper and similar-legged terrestrial bug  imitations.
combining more ‘traditional’ methods of knotting feather fibers and then gluing the fibers to get a strong and realistic shape as in Ulf Hagström’s ‘Sexy legs Simply’ , hopefully this how-to will inspire a few patterns for this end-of-summer-trout-candy must-have fly. enjoy !
