If it was me, I'd thin out the body hackle. Strip one side of the hackle and use less turns. If you have too much hackle the fly will push a lot of water and skate to the surface and a heavy throat will make it tend to lay on its side on the swing. Neither is necessarily a bad thing, but not what I'd like a spey fly to do on the swing.
