(Kind of a low quality picture, I know. There's much to learn about didgital cameras)

It's crunch time! Less than a week until my smallmouth pilgramage to Minnesota. Here's my helgramite imitation:

body: black chenille with a grizzly saddle hack over it.
shellback: Bulk rubber legs covered with flexament or other similar coatings
abdoman: black dubbing with srung neck hackle
eyes: beadchain
pincers: same legging material as back
weight: optional

Looks like another killer. Hope you have a great trip and catch lots of leapin' footballs! I'm looking forward to hearing about it!

No need for apologies about the photo quality -- close-ups can be kind of tricky with digital cameras. There was a good discussion about this in the Gear Talk forum. If you're interested, click the "Search" button and search for "Digital Woes".

Have fun!
