I really liked the effort put into your tutorial...Well Done!
So where can you get the hook and the legs... For me, the wild goose chase I did finding the parts, brought to mind years ago getting ready to fish Victoria Island-- North and East of Alaska. I was told I MUST use hair from between the toes on the right front foot of a "in heat"polar bear" to get the proper look for a fly for artic char I would be chasing. Not that difficult HA!! So the Hook: Call to Gamakatsu... They provide the hook to Lucky Strike. Call to Bass Pro, did have the hook but not now. Call to Lucky Strike, they have the bullet head molded onto the hook, that is how they receive them. They must be purchased with the lead head that will not be used for fly tying. Hooks purchased thur Lucky Strike on line.. The legs.... Boss has a great sight, use that. So my plans are to use this great looking hook to produce "weedless" mat frogs. I will be posting photos when I develope one that works.
