Grizzly hackle would be better

Try spacing the body wraps evenly

Clean up the eye of the hook

I think crowding the eye is a common struggle, actually, fly proportions in general. So know you're not alone!

One technique to help prevent crowding the eye is to start your thread 1/2 or even a full eye length behind the hook eye. This leaves some bare shank between the eye and where you start your thread, you'll cover this when you create the head and whip finish. The bare shank will give you a visual stop as you work towards the eye of the fly so your whip finish won't crowd the eye. It won't be the perfect sized head for every fly but could help you get a sense of proportions.
