Sean..good to have the competition.. I finished 140 of Dick Browns 150 in his book... I am no expert but the wing lengths should be be about what you have done... although the gotchas and Charlies seem to extend only one hook length from the bend of the hook.. (2X the hook length).. for examole the original crazy or Nasty Charlie uses white hackle tips , with the dumbell tired right in at the eye of the hook... all silver flash for body and tail covered by a wrap of 15 pound mono... while the later, and more popular one, from Charles Perkins.. uses craft fur or calf tail,,, pearl flashabo for tail and body with clear v-rib for the body... the eye is tied a bit down from the eye.
