Default New bouncers, 3 color schemes

Made these today. They are variations on a friend's pattern. Pics taken on phone and light wasn't the greatest so pardon the quality.

The center one could pass off as a nice crayfish immigration.

Should work well for most freshwater species, but I'm hoping they bring me some special luck with LMB and carp.

Ok, thanks, I'm thinking they would do well on Bass. I haven't fished for Carp so have no clue.

Nice pattern. I should tie a couple of these. Doesn't the marabou though just get tangled up in the legs? Have you tried them with no marabou?

If you're interested, here's the tying instructions:

1. Tie in 6-8 short strands of flash at hook bend.
2. Tie in 8 rubber legs (4 legs folded once) at same spot on top of flash.
3. Tie in small amount of short marabou/rabbit fur/hackle fluff on top of that.
4. Tie in dumbbell eyes close to hook eye.
5. Tie in flashy estaz/chenille by hook bend and wrap up to dumbbell eye.
6. Whip finish and you are done.

The marabou is short so it's not really a problem. I made one without the marabou, worked well also, I just like the marabou included.
