Korn's Holiday Stone Fly Nymph

Tying some of my Korn's Holiday Golden Holiday Stone Fly Nymph's today...
I designed this fly for Parks Fly Shop. I wanted to produce a more realistic stone fly nymph pattern that has lots of flash.  It was designed for visibility in high muddy water conditions sometimes found in the early fishing season on the Yellowstone River.  

Materials List: 
Hook: MFC #10 Scud
Bead: 3.5 mm gold bead 
Thread: Serafil 200 olive tan 
Tail/Legs: natural turkey biots split by ball of dubbing 
Rib: nylon quilting clear thread
Wingcase/shellback: pearl Easter basket mylar folded twice 
Abdomen and thorax: 50/50 DK #   and golden brown rabbit dubbing 
Collar: loose dubbing
