Dee style salmon fly

I have been experimenting with Dee style flies this winter. I try not to get too bound to exact rules for my flytying and the wing on this fly is a mix of a traditional Dee wing and Spey wing. The wing is tied as a roof with about 45 degrees angle and about a quarter inch between each wing part above the butt (this is not so easy to see on the picture). At the tail the wing are closing together again, I feel this give the wing a tasty shape.
Also notice the body hackel with both blue hackel and grey heron.
