Akroyd - first attempt

Last winter was devoted to speys, and I got some useful feedback from this board. Now I have begun rampaging the dee style, and attached is a photo of my first Akroyd.

Anyway, I like the look of these flies. I have often seen theAkroyd dressed "denser", with a heavier heron hackle and longer yellow body hackle, but I tend to like a slimmer and "racier" look. I didn't have any really good black spey hackle that was long enough for this 3/0 hook, so I used the darkest grey heron hackle I could find in my box. So, if I do this right, a couple of photos will be attached. Sorry for the poor picure quality, my facilities for close up photography are somewhat limited and the digital camera missed the focus point

Edit: Managed to get some better photos!
