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
pincers: same legging material as back
