Banded Woolly Bear - This version uses chenille instead of dry fly hackle. You can tie it so it floats by wrapping the shank with a foam underbody or make it sink with a few turns of lead/non-lead wire wraps. This came from an article written by Steven H. McGarthwaite that i read back around 2013. I do not know if this is his pattern or not, but he did introduce it to me.

Hook - Mustad 9476 (or any 4 XL streamer hook, 10-12
Thread - dark brown
Optional Underbody - .010 0r .015 lead/non-lead wire wraps (for sinking version) or closed cell foam wraps (for floating version)
Body - 1/4 dark brown chenille, 1/2 orange chenille, then 1/4 dark brown chenille
