    Nice looking Copper Johns there, Laurie!

    I'm a fan of the red body. The tail on your orange one looks really nice, too.

    That is another batch of beauts, laurie.
    I have to ask though, why don't you use the legs normally found on Copper Johns?
    If the catch as many or more fish without the legs you've just saved me a troublesome step!
