Winter's Hope Spey Conversion

I've seen the original Winter's Hope as well as a couple spey conversions; I decided to do my own! To create the two color spey hackle, I used 1/2 of a stripped blue and 1/2 of a stripped purple, 2 turns each, somewhat intermingled but the blue is started farther back.

Pattern (as tied above)
Hook - Daiichi 2161 Size 1
Body - Flat Silver Tinsel
Rib - Oval Silver Tinsel, Fine
Spey Hackle - Blue and Purple (Mixed)
Wing - Hot Orange Goose
Thread - Orange
