Tied this one last night and it went great! Super easy and fun. I used green Foam, dubbed with Rabbits fur, and even used a cut out section from a Particle Mask to make the wing. I didn't have the tube rubber legs but did use sili legs quadrupled, tied , then cut for each side. Interestingly enough it looks a little like a Stonefly and a Frog at the same time. I'm sure it will provoke a strike!!! Thank You
