Last weekend , on the water , i saw bettles with a very bright , what I would call "electric green" abdomen and a black shell.
Have been working on how to get the body done , but thought perhaps one of you would have a suggestion.
I would like to use a very hot green tinsel . The problem is the foam . I did try to tie in the foam the usual way , which is , cut a point and tie is in at the bend. But of course when you try to tie in the tinsel , that creates a messy bump. My next thought is to tie in the foam at the head and try to tie down the bend creating a smooth a body as possible .
in the meantime , anyone have a good idea as to how to get a smooth tinsel body and still tie on a foam shell ?

I just ran into the "Beefcake Beetle" online. That looks very promising - It has an "electric green" underside. It's one of the more elaborate ties I've seen for a Beetle, but Heck, It's all foam and rubber legs, so no big deal. The knots on the rubber legs were a nice touch
