I agree wholeheartedly about genetic hackle, it's wonderful.
However this pattern doesn't use hackle, it uses deer hair for "legs" and forms a flat platform for the fly to ride low.Great for finicky fish. Also deer hair is great for floatation.
I will post a pic of a similar fly tied w/ a standared hackle style.
