Also you should use a stainless hook for some weight and coat the head with silicone this is supposed to be fished like a sinko worm (bad spelling)

I coated the heads with silicone and move from a size 10 on the tmc 8089 to a size 6 for better hook gape

Hi Matt. I like the downsized versions. The original was tied fairly large but I think downsizing is a good idea. What chenille did you use? It looks smaller than the "Bohemian" chenille used on the original. Are you going to fish the smaller version for trout?

These ended up about 3.5 inches long each. I used a super bulky polyester yarn by Bernat called Baby Blanket Yarn. Here's the link for it on Jo-Ann's http://www.joann.com/bernat-baby-blanket-yarn-10.5-oz/10949832.html?mkwid=1CwDoJMs%7Cdc&utm_source=google&utm_medium=cpc&utm_term=&utm_campaign=Shopping+-+Needle+Arts&CS_003=10131488&CS_010=%5BProductId%5D&gclid=CO_SguzZm8QCFQ8waQod71EAZA I think any bulky polyester chenille style yarn would work though

I was asking about the yarn because I'm thinking of going small. I have the yarn you used. I'm going to try smaller versions of chenille and see if I like the result. Thanks for the answer.

Bill I bet you could use just regular chenille on a downsized version! I bet that would work very well on trout

Very cool concept.

Haven't gotten to this pattern yet Matt. Working on my Hendrickson progression flies. I'm sure it will work with smaller chenille.
