How do you tie those legs? Very cool.
Just tie an overhand knot in the PT fibers. Form a loop and reach through with forceps to grab the tips and pull them through the loop. I put a little sally hansons on the tips to keep the individual fibers together on just the tips.

You can also use a small knitting needle with the "hook" part to grab the fiber once you make the loop.

What material is the worm?
It’s just an old card of ultra chenille type material that I’ve had for a long time. I’m not sure what brand it is. I just like the color of it. It’s kind of a brownish tan tone. I singe the end of it with a lighter to make it more durable.

This just might be how I kill my summer. :LOL:

Do I go with the 10-7 or the 9-8?

IMO, a 9’ 8 weight is a great set up for carp. It’ll give you a bit extra backbone if you happen to get into a really big fish.

Half and Half's and Mikkelson's Baitfish

Half and Half tied on saltwater streamer hooks in sizes 2-1/0.
White hackle, mirage flashabou, krystal flash, flat pearl body braid, and bucktail.

The baitfish are tied on Ahrex SA280, short shank saltwater hook, in size 2.
White and tan bucktail, stick-on eyes, flat pearl body braid, red krystal flash for the gills, mirage flashabou to bind the bucktail down, and Solarez medium UV resin.

Did well with both of these patterns on Long Island the other day. Lost a bunch to bluefish, forgot to bring wire tippet...
