Thanks, I enjoy the challenge! The prototypes are for the fish and the "good one" goes into a special box for later references. Most of the time I only fish these style flies through slow moving super clear runs/pools where it's fairly controlled so don't put many at risk haha.

I assume the legs are bought and not made?
