Smrdutý Opossum / Stinky Opossum

Not a fancy pattern, more of a "pork & beans" approach. It takes name from its chief ingredient  - hair of the Australian Opossum (Trichosurus vulpecula) and a famous quote from a Czech 60s cult movie Limonádový Joe: Did you just call me an opossum? No, I called you a stinky opossum!

The tie:
#10 wet fly hook
6/0 UNI Thread Gray
eyes from kitchen sink chain
Australian Opossum tail
Gray Hare and Seal dubbing mixture
