I believe what you're showing is how its meant to look. That's the problem I'm having with it. I razored my attempts and finished them with a standard head again. All 3of them.
Maybe its down to hackle choice as the original post has the throat only and sweeps back hard to cover that'gap'. I'm still unconvinced it is worth the effort of moving hook wires about.
I'll have another shot with some new size 10 tiemcos I brought and see if the smaller hook improves things.

It certainly takes a lot of practice.  Once you have it down it shouldn't take any longer than a "regular" hairwing.  The positive aspect is a nearly indestructible fly!
