> > Hot glue for nymph bodies?

I was checking websites for Green Rockworm patterns and ran across a UK site that had a hot-glue bodied generic nymph pattern. A thin bead of glue was laid on the hook shank, shaped while still warm, then ribbed with thread to give segmentation.

Has anybody tried this technique, with any success?

I might make a trip to the closest craft store/big-box pretty soon, their website lists colored glue-stick assortments in a couple shades of green, clear, and some metallic's thrown in for good measure.

Still going crazy on the Renzetti, I've got a couple more days of vacation to kill and lots of flies to experiment with.
