I like that. What are the two little tails. Crazy legs? Good job.

That's pretty wild looking, nice tie! I bet if that was a real light weight head that thing would sure sink slow.

That is really great looking. Love to hear how well it worked.

it was a 1/8 head but with so much fur it sank real slow. Kinda looked like a glider in the water. I think I'll try 1/16 head next time. Heres a better pic of the bass
I'm sure it would have caught crappie if i hadn't lost it so fast bang

You could always buy some tails, they don't cost all that much? Every once in a while I get mad at the ones here and take a few out, keep their tails. Still have too many in my yard as can count 12 most any time they are all out eating, lol! Also if you buy them you can get them dyed colors?
