See chef you are right and in your earlier post that you're having fun. Take it easy don't pressure yourself and take the fun out of it. They all said that your ties will catch fish and the fish is the important judge to concider. As long as you are catching fish now and then and having fun tying that's good. The other thing pointed out is that as you tie more you will keep improving and that willl take care of the small problems that seem big now. I get really critical of my tying and for good reason but it just spoils the tyng fun. After I sit back and look at it the good feelings come back. Let a fish take my fly and it's all good feelings. and I don't care how bad my tying was of that fly. Keep the fun and interest going you'll learn as you go.
