  9. Thanks FlaFly I watched all his video's . To be honest I wasnt sure about mohawk either
  10. My feeble attempt at a punk rocker hes been bounced around alittle since i made him but i just glued mine in
  11. This is my ZB hopper , I dont think picture does him justice cant see black hackle wings so well black on black ,
  12. WOW Mike thats kinda strange tell you why every morning I clean 4 pools and when the love bugs are bad I screen up hundreds of them every mourning then I walk to the lake 10feet away and shake them into the lake and i sit and watch a feeding frenzy of pan fish till everyone of them is gone , I do this at 4 pools and 4 different lakes every morning you wouldnt think panfish would eat hundreds of them if they didnt like them , but tell you what im gonna do when they swarm next time ill post a video for you
  13. Yes there a mess on cars they will take the paint off if you dont get them off , and they love white they swarm white houses , white trucks, , and some days there that bad you could end up eating a few
  14. If you have ever been in Florida when these hatch you know that there are swarms of thousands of these bugs and i believe that they hatch twice a year and the pan fish gobble them up as soon as they hit the water. This bug is the notorious LOVE BUG the love bug got its name because when the mate they get attached to each other and that's the way they fly around. So i decided to make Zach's articulated LOVE BUG i made it articulated so the rear love bug dangles behind the front one as they do naturally. Any feedback or comments would be appreciated. One picture has swiss straw wings , others just foam didnt decide which I like the best
