Default Duckling Fly?

Hi, this is only my second or so post on these amazing forums.

Im curious whether anyone already come up with the idea to tie a Muskie/pike fly that replicates a duckling? I think a black/yellow ball of fluff doesn't sound terribly hard. Would you guys have any ideas on what materials would be best for such a fly?

I need to make this clear.

I did not tie those, I just found them in a google image search.

Thanks sandfly. I should have used a search engine, though, just to save such a foolish question from being asked.

You mean like the 1770's? Hell my great granddad used to use live duckling on Lake Okeechobee and the rim canal for bass. The game was you'd buy a few duckling, tape hook to them and set them on a little shingle with a string and let the current float them out, then jerk the shingle out from under them and wait for the bass. Now that's seriously old school and a bit hard core for me, but its a technique that's been around forever.

As to the OP? I think any variant of a good frog pattern in yellow and brown with some marabou might be a place to start.
