Hi Dave I understand this probelem and its a great one to have(having a good choice of materials that is)Ive often thought of trying it myself but never actually gat there for fear of dissapointment,Reason being?well its because most of my favourite flies be the y vintage or not are usually well balanced and quite sparse,(reason why I totally cant get on with Delta wings) Im sorry for being the Killjoy and as all the other posts are very positive you can always disregard this but IMO this fly as well as its tied?? looks kinda of forced,ie the JC neck. On the plus side you had the balls to to try this and some of my fav tyiers can balance these flies so well and seconds later turn out a clASSIC so as Geert would say just continue. Andrew.
PS To my eye a well placed toppingt would have lifted this totally.
