Extraordinary, would you mind posting an order of events? If not that's okay as well but it would be nice to hear it right from the artist. 

That is the order of events! First material applied to last!

I started a small reorganization of tying materials last night, as I've got a boatload of duck feathers that I've picked up along the trail, and I was trying to get them into some semblance of order when I came upon a few of these lovely little feathers.  I had to put one to good use:

 

Hook, #14, 2xl

Thread: Kimono 100 #353 (Wasabi)

Rib: Thread relaxed, touch dubbed with mole, and then tightened.  

Thorax: Mole

Hackle: Not sure, mallard back feather?

Nice tie as always, and thanks for the links.  I love reading a little history of a fly's creation.
