Looks like some kind of wood-boring beetle to me, likely a cerambycid...

CORRECT!

Right on, Poul
Coleoptera Cerambycidae, is in fact a Long Horned Beetle! Living and eating among the stream side flowers and plants. It has spotted, or multi-colored elytra, or wing cases. It is simmilar to the Notch-Tipped Flower Longhorn of the Eastern U.S., as well as the common Milkweed Bug. With antennae at least half as long as its body, Longhorns can drive the fish crazy if they get blown down or fall in the water as they cross from side to side. And yes! in it's larval stage it bores into the bark of trees, leaving a tell-tale mound of wood dust at the base of the hole. They can live up to 10 years in this stage before becoming an adult.
Remember, Coleoptera is the largest order of insects with 375,000 species identified
I LOVE this stuff!

Ah, I knew there was a reason why whenever my wife asks "What kind of bug is that ... kill it" I reply a beetle.

So what patterns would you recomend to imitate a long horned beetle?
