I'll definitely tie some up. At that size, I'll have to substitute some dubbing for chenille as I don't have any chenille for a size 16 hook. I also wonder, would some bright green of hopper yellow floss frayed out make a good tail? (I only have black, brown, orange, and red marabou. Maybe some pink, i'll have to look.) Plenty of flash, I'll keep it at a minimal as you suggested. I'll let you know how it works. Thanks for the tips!
