EP Tarantula Legs ....
AndrewP posted a topic in The Fly Tying BenchGot this pattern from Drew Chicone; it's a simple pattern really, the only twist is that for the head, instead of using deer hair, or wool, or stacked fibers of some kind, use the EP Tarantula Legs. Material is EP fiber, a little flash, and some rubber "legs" all spun onto a wire brush. I tied up three -- first in brown, with barred tail and bead-chain eyes on a #1 hook .... The same fly, but in white .... And a slighly different one in white, but with a rabbit tail and plastic-bead eyes (so it won't sink as fast as the first two) .... Have not tried them out yet; maybe get some results this weekend if weather cooperates ..... AP
