The effectiveness of the Pat's Rubber Legs is known industry wide, so as I do with lots of already popular patterns, I make subtle (or not so subtle) tweaks to them. This one uses one of the best long shank jig hooks I've seen in a long long time, a very interesting hackling technique, and a small bit of flashy dubbing. Mix up the colors and happy fishing!!
P.S. The Squatchy Bas%$rd is a nickname for one of my current co-workers. He's very very Squatchy.
