Okay ... I am tired of this!

Just to show you that you're not so special, MW, I decided to tie a realistic grub worm.

Here's the original worm that I patterned from.

Using a secret hook and secret thread and materials, I tied up this realistic waxworm.

I know, it doesn't look nearly as good as your bug on a hook, but it's my first try.

Well, not really ... 

It would look much better if I had PhotoShop ... but all I had to work with was MSPaint.

No waxworms were hurt in the manufacturing of that picture.

Hi,

 

thank's a lot for all your nice comments :-)

 

@ mikechell: your idea is very cool and means a lot less work than my way of tying them. Stupid me :-)

Thanks, MW.  You are correct ... took me about 10 minutes.  Better yet, I did while my students were busy with their projects, right here in the class room.  No benches or tying mess.

Granted, I am feeling very little "satisfaction" ... and I didn't even get to handle a real worm ... but it's probably the only way I'll ever "tie" something as good as the realistics you guys do.
