Summer's not over YET, thus in this video I'm sharing a basic Foam Beetle.  I also discuss how you can use a cutter to tie multiple sizes.

 

I try not to overthink the leg colors, and say that in the video, yet I also share a unique one following the tying.  I'm sure none of you obsess over anything like that, too! ;-)

Don't fish beetles that often but may have to. Nice simple tie. I like it.
