Yes, yes, and yes to all that have replied!! My 2 older boys that are 7 and 9 have tied flies that look like what you are fishing with. All 3 boys with my youngest being 4 have been learning to tie flies at 3 years old. With a short learning curve and attention span I've learned to use what my kids tie, for if it has a shape and a hook and I place in that path of the fish you will catch what you are going after! Keep using what you have!
