Same as for the other bug recipe, except for:
The tails are made from bucktail. After the fly is finished, shaping etc. I split the bucktail and coat each segment with Flexament or equivalent.
Alternative methods:
1- "knot" the bucktail before tying on and create a frog leg appearance e.g tie a knot and that will create an angle of the leg(s).
2- tie in some bucktail and figure 8 this so that you have spilt tails
