Bristle Leech variation

Inspired by Gary Lafontaine's pattern. I use Chenille and Marabou for the body. It's hard to see the bristle legs on the picture attached, but they are there.

Hook: 4x long shank, bent upwards with the hook inverted
Add the bristle legs using heavy mono and tie in some weight on either side of the shank, makes for a flat profile and helps with the bristle legs. I use copper wire , 14 ga. instead of lead.

Body: Black or black/green/yellow varigated chenille, with 2-3 clumps of marabou tied along the straight shank and one tied in at the top end of the bent shank. Pick of the marabo dubbing that makes the top part of the bent hook.
Dry profile attached
