First, this is a nice fly with good proprotions.

The only things I would do differently are: 1) use the next size larger oval tinsel for the body segment ribbings and only make 3 turns of ribbing on each; and 2) lower the main wing or make it about 4 stripes (2 more blue and 2 more black) wider, this would provide a better wing sillouette and allow the kingfisher cheek to sit more on the side of the wing.
