    Howdy-

    Anyone out there have a recipe for Karnopp's Space Invader? Looks like a fun tie, nice twist on the bugger.
    Thanks

    I don't have the recipe but from the pics it looks like it starts off as a bugger; marabou tail, some type of body (prolly chenille), most likely a hackle wrapped over that and heavy on the front end. Rubber legs, ostrich, maybe some schlappen, eyes and chenille head (some photos look like peacock herl).
