A couple new ones...

Hey there, folks.

'Chuck S.' linked to a mighty fine looking little devil called the Infamous Pink Worm (with instructions).

This is a beautiful looking imitation, so I couldn't help myself. I tried two. 

Brown chenille with similar colored mohair sac.

Black woolly bugger chenille with red yarn sac.

Can't wait to try these out. 

But wait, there's more! The Orvis Book of Fly Tying (Rosenbauer)  has soft hackles mostly in hair's ear, so I tried a little bit of fox for a tail. Hackles were a little too short, though.

Got some serious chase from some green sunfish on this one today.

And guess what I found in my wife's sewing bag? Yep. Pom poms. You know what that means!

Egg sucking leech! Woohoo!

Then, I just had to tie another bomber, this one with a lighter helping of foam, a taller hump and a badger wing on it. I dubbed with red yarn. I call it the Winged Widow Bomber.

I will let y'all know how these do! Any pointers, let me know.
