New mayfly nymph pattern - BWO colors

Been playing around with this little pattern. Wanting a fly with a little more kick to it. 

Hook: MFC #7076 1XL
Bead: Brass
Thread: 14/0 Olive
Tail: Partridge
Abdomen: Peacock Krystal Flash over olive thread
Legs: Partridge
Wing: Pearl Krystal Flash
Thorax: Olive Dubbing 

Basically the same fly with a few minor changes
1. Olive tungsten bead
2. Legs are olive flouro fibre 
3. Tail is a olive dyed partridge
