Nice.
Red squirrel tail and yellow feathers can make a real effective streamer.

Nice looking streamer! One suggestion- on your throat you have to watch the length. It can have a tendency to all go to one side of the hook when wet and possibly throw off the action when you strip it. On the pattern you did I would have made it shorter so the tips only reach the inside of the bend. If you want to go with a longer throat I would have it go at least the width of the gap past the bend, and then a longer wing also. Try fishing it and you'll see what I mean. Real nice job on the body and ribbing. Keep em coming.
