This is a keeper.

Very durable, simple, buggy and floats like a cork.

Thanks Scott

This time with legs; shortened up the tail, too. Tyed here in skwala colors; not the olive green stuff that I've been using in the past but something closer to the ones I've been seeing, which is something like dirty motor oil (at least on the rivers I've found them on).

Another keeper especially useful when fish do not want to commit.
