John...nice shape on that... If you get a chance try one with Small hackle tips for legs, imbedded in the epoxy....or take a regular hackle feather and take your fingers and ,going from the tip ,and "open" the feathers by slipping your finger down the stock.... then take some scissors and cut the hackles ends right close to the feather stock or shaft to create a thin "hairy" leg. Another way is to take some Turkey biots strips and epoxy them in for legs...like some tyers do with stone flie patterns.
