Small version of the classic Boss. Originally the body material was floss or wool, but chenille is a great alternative if you want a fat profile. I use squirrel hair on small hook and bucktail on large. The hackle can be orange or red… or anything in between (reddish orange).

Hook: Ahrex NS115 Deep Streamer D/E #8 (or #2-8)
Thread: Black
Eyes: Bead chain eyes medium, silver
Rib: Oval silver medium
Tag: 2-3 turns of the rib
Tail: Squirrel hair, Black (Bucktail on large hooks)
Body: Ultra Chenille Standard, Black
Hackle: Red (or orange) soft saddle feather
