Sean,

A fly of this style (hackle wing streamer) really should be tied on a long shank (6x to 8x long) streamer hook or the body is way to short in relation to the wing causing the fly to be unballanced. The wing is also tied much too high for good swimming and proper action. The wing should hug the body to avoid it causing the fly to turn on its side and swimming erratically when fished.
