I'll add the recipe for you....

Deep Chili Pepper

The standard Chili Pepper is tied with bead chain eyes, but I put these together with dumbell eyes to help get down in situations where the fish might be holding a bit deeper.

Hook: Size 4
Thread: Orange, 3/0
Eyes: Gold dumbell
Tail: Copper krystal flash
Underbody: Flat tinsel
Overbody: Orange Larva Lace body material
Wing: Sparse Orange calf tail or bucktail (here, bucktail)
Wing flash: Very sparse pearl flashabou
Head: Thread sealed with flexcement

If I remember correctly, the recipe calls for V-rib or some other equivalent for the overbody. I used Larva Lace body material instead.
