Thanks Bill! I just wanted to use up a McMurry ant body that I screwed up.

Going to have to tie a few using foam cylinders instead of the balsa Charlie. I’m liking this idea but don’t enjoy creating the balsa wood cylinders. I have some ultra small diameter foam cylinders that I think would sub for the balsa eyes. Tie a section in crosswise at head something like a booby. I’ll see how it turns out. Thanks for the idea.
