    Here is a pattern that I created. It is similar to the black woolly, but with a few additions.

    Hook: 4-8 Streamer
    Thread: black/brown
    Body: Black Chenille, wrapped with 1 peacock herl
    Tail: Black marabou with Krystal Flash
    Hackle: Black/Brown
    Head: White Strip of 20 ounce soda labels, cut to 1/5 inch and wrapped in the head until equivilent in height to chenille. Then you put eyes on with red permanent marker.
