Thank you sir. :)
I'm still a student of these classy patterns. I'm thinking maybe a little less spey hackle for a less bushy profile?

The spey hackle is fine. The only thing I'd work on if I was you is reducing the size of the head by cutting down the number of thread wraps. However, this is a minor thing and many of the old masters and it is more important to have a well-proportioned fly and head than the smallest head possible.

Have to agree with flytyer, great fly! Some of the others you have been posting are also very nice! Thanks for posting them.
