Imitation: Worms,
Material List:
Hook: Raven shrimp hook #8 (?)
Tail: light brown Lion Brand Suede chenille
Thorax: reddish brown chenille

Tying Instructions: This pattern depends on the specific brand of chenille. This 'suede' chenille is made from polyester and is very full, soft and flexible. It also sinks quite well. $9 CDN for a skein at Michael's.

1) put end of chenille between tweezers and burn with lighter to a point.
2) cut chenille, expose some thread and attach to hook.
3) attach and wrap reddish chenile twice around hook.
4) attach head portion of chenille.
Presentation Tips: Drift it! I haven't tried it yet but in my water bowl it looks like the real thing (when dead of course).
