That's a fish catcher. Nicely dressed. I think you started the tip and tag at just right point, the body could be lengthened a wee bit more towards the head (looks like you may have extra space on that blind-eye to have dressed). Keep at it! You're on a nice drive and feel free to change lanes...ain't no traffic anyways.
I really hope this becomes your new confidence fly..just keep tying them and fishing them. Those long hackles are the **** in really cold, really slow, deep winter water. Then this time of year grease line near the surface at first and last light (and all day in-between).. and when no one is looking you riffle the thing and wake it because you know thats what I'd be doing..
