Looks really good to me Adrian.
Great to see you giving it a go!
I think because of the vagueness of Colin's listed recipe we get hard on ourselves with precision, even when we know that certain patterns have some latitude for interpretation.
This is one of my all time favorite patterns to tie and fish, esp in the summer when summer-run fish are about. I can only imagine how it fishes for Salar...I gave another one to a pal who fished the Dee & the Spey in late June but I don't recall if anything came to it...
All good things,
Ps...it does strike me as a pattern that needs a" longish" body to it
"used to be northspey"...
