Here's the SBS that Wiggle Minnow creator Todd Boyer posted on the Hatches Magazine website. I think this is how Kyle is talking about tying it.

I'll have to try that method...thanks Kyle and Jule.

I especially like the idea of putting the hole in front instead of cutting all the way thru...and putting it on in the front then working to the tail....I was heading in that direction myself....just never thought of using the method of pushing it over the eye....should make things easier!

This may be a dumb question. If so it will not be my first I'm sure ;)

Could you paint these bodies like I do my #10 foam popper bodies with aerosol spray paint? I put the major colors on say white body and black back with spray paint. It works well on the smaller stuff. I was just wondering how it would do on the larger bodies. What do you all think?
