Very interesting. I have used mallard or antron trailing, but never made the thickened caudal abdomen. Obviously, your fly has a very realistic profile.

After looking at the pictures of the natural, I'm tempted to use pale dun raffia for the trailing shuck. I need to play around with this pattern. Looks extremely effective.

Thanks for sharing. ;)
