Pat's rubber legs

Here we have a very simple fly that is as easy to tie as it is gets.
Use a slightly thick gauge of lead or lead substitute and tie the legs in to three spots using the lead wraps to do the spacing for me. 
Pat's rubber legs is a winner for sure. It produces in the Rangeley area as well as it does in the west! 

I cut the legs a bit shorter than most people and I do this for purely aesthetic reasons. 

I'm using a 3x long hook
The thick non-lead weight
Spandex legs
Variegated chenille
