Body is made by slicing a conical edgewater boilermaker popper body lengthwise.
Hook is 3/0 Orvis Bass Bug.
I built a "platform" of 30lb stiff mono each side of the hookshank to help prevent the body moving.
Liberal use of superglue throughout the construction process!
Legs/feet are triple strands of silli-legs glued into place between the two body halves. To create the "feet" simply tie a knot and splay out the individual strands.
The rear legs are at least twice as long as the front.
I wrapped the body lightly with fine mono for strength before coating with Loon hardbody and then docorated with pantone pen.
Eyes are rattle doll-eyes.
I'm going to tie a few up with weed-guards also.
When sight fishing, look over your shoulder from time to time, you never know who's behind you
