Material List:
size 10-6 hook.
black thread

black yarn or chenille

Tying Instructions: 1. Make a thread base with black thread.
2. Tie in some red yarn, chenille, or marribou at the bend side of the shank.
3. Tie in your black thread or chenille, and wrap it up the shank, and then back down. Wrap your thread around it.
4. Go to about halfway up the hook shank, and tie in 4 rubber legs, 2 on each side.

Presentation Tips: let it sink slowly, or you can put it under a popper, and use the popper as a bobber. Works GREAT for catchin bluegills and is an easy tie!
