    Default Nice legs

    I recently tied this beetle up and love the legs on this, tied with broom bristles and bent with a heated tweaser, thought I'd share it here

    That is proper good! Everything just looks right, not just the legs!

    Thanks Grant, Korrie, hy werk deksels goed en die fishing is regtig goed hieronder, met die droogte lyk die water great, baie skoon met lae vlakke, so die fishing is eintlik verspot maklik. Ek sien uit na die bietjie kouer toestande wat nou begin.

    Very very nice tie.
    The legs make the fly look very realistic.
    One thing do you tie two pieces of foam in at the bend then fold them forward or do you split it with a razor

    Great tie mate
    Super realistic too.

    Man, that little beetle pattern in iridescent green would slay the NZ browns.
