Hard to tell from the picture but it looks like your tail might be too long. Use the hook shank as a measuring stick. Tails should only be as long as the distance betweem the eye and beginning of the bend in the hook.

Tail is a touch long and I used the wrong hackle fiber (didn't have one long enough of the blue dun). Yep, Bela Fleck was on talking about his album he did in Africa. Neat stuff. Would love to open a shop, but too lazy!
