Pretty cool with the legs as an adjusting point. Do you glue the plug or how does that work? I don't have any poppers in my box, so this would be good to learn.

I heat the eye of the hook and just slide the plug on. Once it's in place I then start tying on my thread about 3/4 of the way down on the plug.

The ear plug and thread cinches right up against the hook shank. I then Heat a razor knife and trim away the ear plug material that is not going to be used.

I then tie on my tail feathers followed by the pip cleaner legs that I wined around the shank once and then wrapping with thread as you would Clouser eyes.

Simple. I added the pipe cleaner legs because in the past I have had trouble with the ear plug popper wanting to roll to one side or the other.

I have a lifetime supply of ear plugs at work that's why I screw around with them so much. Need to find the perfect formula.
