I like mine a lot.  Flip flop body, Dollar Tree feather boa, congo hair and rubber legs from FTD.  Cheap, easy and makes a lot of pop in the water.

Heavy ... do you print those WITH the hole for the rubber legs and the hook? 

Or do you punch the holes through there after?

Printed with a tube running from one side to the other. Other than the tube, it's hollow. Won't leak even if the legs are omitted.

A friend of mine has a 3d printer. Are plans for that available online somewhere?

I'll usually fish a #8 or 10 gurgler in white or black.

 

The double barrel popper bodies by Surface Seaducer work very well.

 

If you're buying them Bett's makes some great bugs.
