Notes: The Superfloss Rubberlegs is also known as Pat's Rubberlegs, Jimmy Legs, The Turd, and Knotty Girls. My understanding is that "Pat" is a guide that works out of the Hyde shop in Last Chance, Idaho but this may be a ruse. Jimmy Legs is a variation from Idylwild Flies in which the Superfloss legs are knotted and tied on a curved hook, such as a TMC 200R. Knotty Girls also have knotted legs but they are usually round rubber material. Whatever the name, the pattern works quite well and has become a favorite among guides. The pattern is a variation off an older pattern known as the Girdle Bug using chenille and Superfloss. Superfloss is a spandex rubber material that is also sold as Flex Floss and Spanflex. It is much more durable than rubberleg material and very supple with lifelike movement in the water. Mickey Wooton, a guide out of West Yellowstone, came up with a variation of trimming the chenille at the abdomen for a flattened taper and replaced the Antennae and Tails with Krystalflash and Goose Biots, respectively. Fish this pattern in the Riffles and Runs of fast moving water. Great with a Beadhead dropper such as a Prince Nymph or Hare's Ear.
