Got the bodies from BassPro shop...Their hump back hooks were way to long for this size so I managed to have/make #6 Gamakatsu 50410/ drop shot hooks to work. Had to spear with bodkin and push the eye of the hook thru from the rear and Krazy glued'em rather than split'em. Had to open the bite of the hooks a bit w/pliers. Wish the lil bodies were flat on bottom but OK...Not having to paint is a big plus! But only colors were lite green and yellow...Later DL
