The Chippendale
 
Hook - 6 something
Bead - Wapsi blacknickel conehead Large
Tail - One full chipmunk tail
Body - Dyed UV Polar Chenille in Olive UV

This pattern is a homage too my former co-workers of a certain dance troupe I was in. Purveyors of the constant grind and hustle. The secret to getting the tail is waiting till rigamortis sets in so you can get the full tail. When fishing this pattern the key is to thrust, thrust, and wiggle. The fish can't refuse.

I happen to have a full chipmunk tail lying in the immediate vicinity of my desk, thanks to my wife's prime predator cat. If there is an interest I can start saving the tails from her kills. Her most recent was a mole.

I should've kept the rest of it, the hair looks like it'd make some good dubbing. I'd be interested to use other types of rodentia. Prairie dog tail looks like it'd be ideal. The long haired guinea pigs might make some decent streamers. If you can get chupacabra hair, you'll catch all the fish.
