Default Stonefly Knotted Rubber Legs

I'm getting ready to tie my first rubber leg pattern which is going to be a little black stonefly. To make things a little more challenging for this first, knotted rubber legs I think will be great.

I've already got this great stuff from Spirit River called Flex-Floss in Black.

Anybody out there tying legs like this and kind enough to give me a little guidance before I start? After spending some time searching the web, I've found very little so far.

Default Re: Stonefly Knotted Rubber Legs

you have a few options-

1) knot the material off the hook, before you tie it in, then loose loop over, draw it to the proper position and tie them in
2) tie the material in, use a bodkin/large needle, wrap the material around and slide the end through the resulting loop then position the knot
3) go to the fabric store and look for a tool called a 'nit picker' which make knotting materials pretty darn easy

You know my wife has always called me a nit-picker.
