This is my first go at anything like this. I've been tying for a while, but I've never really messed with any of the dressier patterns.

My floss work on the rear is sloppy, and I think the wing needs to be more full. I struggled with getting more than three GP feathers to lay together well enough.

Let me know what you think!

Nice fly,

Id like to note thst hackle is normally behind the rib.
I struggle with more that 3 toppings too. Try tying them in close to the base of the topping. ie, choose toppings that are just barely long enough so you can use the entire feather. The base is wider and easier to stack. Also better quality toppings help with fullness too.
