Crickets
Been spending some time playing around with ideas, thought a cricket jig might be a challenge. Big Grin These are pretty small and took awhile to tie..... but was fun and i think they turned out prety good. The poly yarn bodies should also soak up & hold scent - thinking i may try to dunk them in some of the Gulp! juice.

Both of these are 1/80 with #8 sickels - thanks JJ1!
Materials: Black poly yarn body with contrasting thread colors. Black silicone for legs. Boar hair for antenae (sp?)
