Some tips about those streamers: they are very tricky and can drive you mad ;-). Try to put the wing simultaneously and shorten it to the tail-lenght. If they are too long, they will be wound up on the body when you fish it. I did the same mistake, to let the wings that long. Try also to expand the silverribbing. Tip 1 for the throat: from the longer side of the feather about 2-3 cm and then try to fold it Tip 2: wind it like a Wetfly-hackle and put all the fibers down and secure it. Keep ging on that Pattern! I know that is hard work on it
