If you look around in some of the catalogs you'll probably see other names for the same type patterns.
You can use silicone legs, round or living rubber legs, or Lumiflex legs, all of which work rather well.
Try it you'll like it!

have tied a wooly pattern in orange with orange legs that the fella fishing it called a "down home ugly" ....was a simple pattern, tied in a #6, works pretty good....mostly resembles a crawfish, i suppose. we caught fish, and that's all i needed to know.....

Neither pattern is really anything new, and both combine features of other flies like the Woolly Bugger & Rubber Legs. They are both perfect examples of how tyers can think alike, and both work just fine.
I don't think that any fly has to really look like what it is intended to imitate, at least not to us, it just has to act like the real thing and convince the fish it's something they want to eat.
