I have a larger needle in a handle that I push through the head. Then take my bobbin thread a pass through the hole the needle made. Slip legs through the loop and pull back.

Works on foam or cork about the same.

Peewee...usually if the legs are behind the head its because it was a hard foam popper....much more difficult to get the holes in the head than a soft foam or cork body.
doubt it matters all that much....I've done em' both ways....prefer the traditional cork body with legs thru the head though. :D

I'm not sure how much difference if any it makes to the fish. But the ones we bought when I was a child were 'legs through the head' style. To me they just don't seem right tied from the hook behind the head.

I think through the head gets better action.Legs are spread front and back and less to get in the way of rubber action.
now out of rum
