Looks fine to me...except that the eyes might be a little too large. As to the hackle, I always stop behind the eyes and throw a figure-8 of chenille around the eyes.

That fly there will catch fish with or without hackle. I useualy use longer hackle than you have. I had a killer fly before the wooly bugger came out., it was black, it was a dubbed fur body over lead wire with a marabu tail.

I think the hackle is a little thick and by saddle I assume you mean dry fly saddle hackle.

That hackle looks stiff and that fly might float, even with those eyes. Those eyes are huge too.
Personally I would use smaller eyes and add lead to the body to add weight.
