Looking forward to dunking this "R&D fly"... took a strand each of olive and bright green embroidery floss and twisted them into a rope before wrapping the body.

I luvs soft hackles!

I do the same thing with the multi-hued bodies: 1/3 standard rayon floss strands, then use one 1/3 brown, two 1/3's 'insect green' and 0n 1/3 light olive or yellow and then twist them into a loose yarn so the floss will layout flat as it usually does.
