A large profile streamer that had endless variations of color and size.

Nice presentation and a god looking streamer.   It seems though that most of the movement comes form the mobile materials used. There is not much side to side wiggle from the articulation and if that could be enhanced it would be even more lifelike.  Something to 'push water' at the head of the trailer segment might do the job.

I think that you will get more side kick under real fishing conditions when stripping the fly. The tank test shows more of a swing presentation, not a strip and twitch.
