Merkin



Hook: Standard saltwater
Body: Rug yarn
Tail: various materials
Legs: Rubber hackle
Eyes: bead chain

Instructions from William Andrus:

It's your typical merkin but i'll use diferent things for a tail. I like this one for dreging holes and fishing at night under lights. I'll toss it in the dark outside of the light. I'll let it sink and pull it into the lighted water slowly. Its good for when there are a lot of sand trout near the surface and the reds are deeper.
