Fuzzy Wuzzy

tied by deeky
Fly Type: Attractor Pattern,
Target Species: Panfish,
Recommended Region: Central US,
Material List:
Hook: Mustad 3262, size 8
Thread: Danville Flymaster 6/0, black
Bead: 1/8" tungsten, black
Tail: Squirrel tail, natural black
Body: Ultra Chenille, red
Hackle: Hen, black
Tying Instructions: Thread bead on the hook and vice it. Tie in tail, avoid being over-heavy. Tie in chenille and wrap half way up open shank. Tie off (I snip the extra off so that I don't have to work around it, but it's your choice). Tie in and wrap a couple of wraps of hackle, then tie off and snip extra. Re-attach chenille and wrap rest of shank, then tie off and snip. Tie in another, slightly larger hackle and wrap a couple of turns before tying off. Whip, snip, and fish.

The original is as listed. I've also included an orange body. There have been all kinds of variations with or without weight, and with different colors of body, tail, and hackle. Some suspect it was possibly tied as a shrimp immitation.
