So I am still looking for my yarn but Bill Laminack gave me another idea off of his IG page.
These are all 5-1/4 to 6 inches in length on 5/0 bass hooks most on EWG's. A few have rattles and one has a cone in the nose.

I dig worm patterns, thanks for sharing! I'd be curious to know how those move in the water, they seem a bit stiff, but I've had lots of luck with stick baits in my spin fishing days, so they could be killer.

 

In regards to your bohemian chenille post, I found a variety pack of it about this time last year on etsy.com great movement from that stuff.

Thanks

I've found it at A.C. Moore.  I pretty sure other craft stores would carry it.  It cost $6 or $7 for a large bag of it.  Also, when I went into the local $1 store last week they had some in a couple of colors.
