No, not those legs. As I was walking around Target today, I ran across this. A rubber Koosh Ball.
The first thing that came across my mind was "those would make really nice hopper legs". At a $1.00, I couldn't pass it up. When I got home, I took the wire binding the thing together and proceeded to tie up some Choas Hoppers using these new legs. The rubber strands are square so the legs come out a lot better than the rubber legs when knotted. The length is just about perfect for most hopper legs and the color is great. They come in various colors so you can tie up just about any weird looking hoppers with legs you want. As a fly tier, I just couldn't pass it up.
