I usually tie these when I need a break from the usual. These patterns are all of my own creation. I'm far from an 'expert' tier but I think they turned out decent.

Beautiful! The correct term is wetflies.

According to whom? Stevens, Bates, Klausmeyer? I think streamer is a perfectly acceptable term.

Look good, but if you fish with them i think you'll find the wings will foul the hook a lot. Make the wings not much longer than the bend of the hook and you should be fine.

Call them what you want, but they are classic wetflies. They swim very differently than a streamer and they are fished differently than a streamer. You typically use them in tandems or in threes.
