    A little different look that the Splitsville. Downwing, front-to-back hacklestacker; it'll ride low on the water.

    hook - Dai Riki 305 #14
    thread - MFC 8/0 olive
    abdomen - 1mm foam olive
    hackle post/indicator - 1mm foam orange
    wing - deer hair
    feelers - Krystal Flash rootbeer
    hackle - grizzly dyed olive
    thorax - dubbing olive

    mash barb; start thread at 70% mark and wrap back to bend

    not sure my eyes can spot that little bit of orange foam, so here's one with 2mm x 2mm foam post/indicator (head's a little bigger, but that's the tradeoff for visibility)
