    The V-rib wraps seperated at the tail and I was sloppy coloring the eyes, but overall I am pretty happy....

    I used rubber legs instead of the Collared Peccary hairs the pattern called for....

    Thoughts?

    Good call on the rubber legs. I'm sure they'll fish better than the real hairs. Looks like a good yellow stone for the yak.

    Good lookin' stone. I've had my best luck with rubber legs vs. biots or other stiff material.
