Yours is not that bad, and will catch fish. Here is what should be a link to a youtube video of a Doc Spratley. Despite the distracting music, might be worth watching. Just keep practicing!

Looks fine to me-flies do not need to be perfect in the scheme of things. i spent a morning with 1 bluish spratley years back and by the time the bows were finished with it, things were hanging off it.
