Target Species: Panfish
Recommended Region: Northeast US

mix your dubbing to match the color of your local insect. dub a very thick abdomen of this. rib the abdomen w/ thread. dub a thinner thorax. tie on the wing cases. dub a small head. tie on the antenne. whipfinish. pull out fibers from the sides of the thorax and then coat them in head cement. while the cement is still wet, try to shape the fibers into individual legs the best you can (mine doesnt look so great!).
