Very nice work.
If this is a recreation of the original pattern designed by Ray Bergman then I would like to add some background . There is an original pattern from Bergman which he designed in 1927 called the BASHERKILL.
On page 137 of Just Fishing (Ray Bergman, 1942 ed.), he wrote, "Often in May I have been on a stream during a hatch of greenish yellow flies. The Baskerkilll serves me well under these conditions."
This is the recipe that I have found...
body...pale olive green
hackle...same as tail

This was taken from the "The classic dry fly box" (I think that was the book) by Mike Valla, I got to tie some with him just a few weeks back on the WoodsTorrt in Sweden.

so i called valla and here's the story...mike saw a photo of a trout caught in the BashAkill river a while ago and made this pattern up. so this has nothing to do with Bergamn's BashERkill.. cool stuff
