On the Vise: CDC Golden Stone

Gubna's CDC Golden Stone
This is a variation of a similar fly tied by Charlie Craven.  The above is my first attempt, and I know there are many flaws.  The recipe is as follows:

Hook:    Size 8 stonefly hook
Thread: Hopper Yellow 140
Bead: Gold (prefer tungsten)
Weight: .30 lead free wire
Tail: Pheasant Tail
Abdomen/Thorax/Neck:  Gold dubbing
Collar:  Light dun CDC and brown hackle
Shellback= Pearl tinsel (large)

Segmentation: Black wire (as small as you're comfortable handling)
