Similar in use, but Swiss straw in a natural material I believe. I want to do a side by side caparison. 

My issue with Swiss Straw is that it's so easily shredded by fish or even my hands when tying.  I tried using yellow/golden swiss straw for a stonefly back and it was a mess.

That's so cool. I've been meaning to try hacklestacking soft hackle on a nymph but haven't gotten around to it. Now I'm inspired. Did you have to change your technique at all vs. a dry fly?

Muddled Killer.

A killer style fly combined with the virtues of a sparsely dressed muddler. Hence the name. 

Partridge ( 2 a side) , root beer flash, deer hair and a red wool body.

Effectiveness? I have no idea, but could be fun to try

Actually, this is meant to be fished as a dry.

Looks like the tips of the caribou got cooked a bit, possibly due to 2-step dye process needed for deep black; may have to cut back on the temperature.

hook - WFC Model 6 #10
thread - Uni 8/0 black
tail - yarn chartreuse
rib - small wire silver
body - Ice Dub black/hare’s ear dyed black 
body hackle - hen black
shoulder - chukar dyed chartreuse (1 Tbs Rit Neon Yellow/1 cup water)
collar/head - caribou dyed black (1 Tbs Rit Dark Brown/1 cup water overdyed with 1 Tbs Rit Black/1 cup water)

Scott

I see.  The hackle looked identical to the pheasant tail tail, so I assumed it was a nymph...  Anyway, that's what I'm going to try -- a hackle-stacker nymph with some sort of wing case pulled over the hackle.  If I do it I'll post it.

Did you use a gallows tool?  I don't own one, but am considering it due to the difficulty of holding the material in my hands.

I've been thinking of getting one for hackle stickers and paraloop style flies myself. Just can't pull the trigger. Plus it gives me an excuse.

I made my own a while back when I started tying Carnage variations using a mono core. Simple to make and a whole lot cheaper.
