Darned good fly Mike!!!!! :headbang:

 

Two big things I see are, and in this order the biggest, be sure to crowd the eye with your body and hackles. You can stagger the tie off of each material a little closer than the last to the eye because you don't want all the bulk of all the materials stacking up right at the head and the hackle and throat will cover the body parts. By not bringing everything forward, you ended up tying in the wing too far forward and the result is you can see black thread behind/below it.

 

The butt is a bit weak. More turns of the Ostrich will fill it better.
