Dragonfly Nymph... a new "twist"

I've been messing around on the bench this evening trying to tie a reasonable imitation of a dragonfly nymph for my outings this weekend. After dubbing a few bodies, I decided to give the "nymph rib" a shot; see what you think...

Hook is a standard sz. 10 nymph hook, Mustad.
Thread is dark olive flat waxed.
Small black mono eyes.
Olive marabou tail, legs, and wing.
Body is olive flat waxed thread, over which is clear nymph rib, giving the appearance of a segmented abdomen.

Any thoughts?
