BodyUTC Vinyl Rib NYM Green, Hare’s Ice Dub Rusty Orange
Thorax/Wing: Seals Fur Green Highlander

This one came to be when I found the package of Rusty Orange and the Green Highlander together in my dubbing box. I think the wrapping of the vinyl rib slowly opening up to reveal the rusty orange can work, together with the seals fur for a bit of life in the water.

UTC Vinyl Rib MDG

The Vinyl Rib is great for segmented bodies on midges, stoneflies, nymphs, emergers and much more. This is the UTC MDG in chartreuse that I have tied on 3 different sizes to show how the segmentation will appear on different hook sizes. The Rib is slightly see-through and you get a nice effect if you wrap the hook with a different color to get a effect.
