Notes/Steps

This is a variation of Bob Popovics Surf Candy tied with Super Hair. In this case I used Slinky Hair. A saddle hackle feather is cut to form the tail and tied on a peice of 20# pound flouro. Then the flouro is cover by hollow body braid then tied to the hook. In the future, I will tie this pattern with eyes closer to the Hook eye to make the nose a little shorter and rounder

Don't leave it laying out--your cat might eat it. Looks realistic!
