Most dries float great for long periods of time in calm water. It is the capillary action of water with turbidity that helps them lose their buoyancy...and other things. Your fly looks fabulous and I am a proponent of the slim-line body.

One idea to try is using pieces of old fly line (floating) for the body. It works great and you can use a lighter to taper it appropriately. Keep up the great work and thanks for sharing!
