I use it tie some big ass deer hair frogs that always landed upside down.The answer was one or two real hard 12 inch pulls and that would suck them underneath and then they would pop up rite.
Not too bad some but most times land upside down and roll over on the first pop. It's easy to catch big ole bucket mouths but real trick to catch little ones....
Later on I learned to wrap the bend of the hook with 3-4 wraps of .020-.025 of lead...problem solved.
I always enjoy your posts you think of the box and do others things that other people don’t do.
That looks like a very simple and effective pattern.

You can make the round part by rolling/gluing the 1/8 stuff
I never thought to do that...Great tip.
You truly think out side the box!
