Default Mysis Shrimp

There is a guy who lives in Denver named Herman De Gala. He is a true artist at fly tying and coming up with unique ways of doing things with his craft.
I had the pleasure of attending a tying session at a local fly shop featuring Herman. One of his signature flies is the Mysis Shrimp. Here is a humble attempt at tying something as near as I could get to one of his master pieces.

Hook - TMC 2487
Thread - 17/0 White Uni Trico
Eyes - Burnt mono #15
Antenna - Coq de Leon
Legs - Flouro Fiber
Abdomen - Midge tubing clear - Coq de Leon

That's a handsome shrimp, Yat. Well done.

Flippant question, if you were to blink too hard would that 17/0 break?
