Project BWO - part I. (Hatching Nymph)

The tie:
#14 Hanák 103BL hook
tan UNI 8/0 thread
olive UNI stretch
Opossum dubbing dyed olive
pearl UNI #16 tinsel
rooster tail, hen legs

My new project for the month of January is preparing life cycle imitation of the #16 Blue winged olive (Baetis sp.). It is the first major hatch of Spring and I feel obligation to welcome it in style.
Nymph is the first, with emerger, dun and spinner still to come.
