Distressed Damsels

Again thinking along the line of Carp on a fly I got a few ideas from "Roughfisher". He's one very inovative fly tyer in the field of "Rough" fly fishing. I wanted a familiar carp food that would remain relatively weed free in the flats I plan to fish this year, these should do it. Here are my first two trials.
Hook - Ken Sawada Bartleet Sedge #8.
Tail - olive rabbit.
Rib - gold wire.
Body - olive hare's ear.
Legs - pumpkin barred silicon.
Eyes - gold bead chain.
Thorax - olive Estaz Petite.
