Default Re: Novice tyer looking for critque/pointers

Great start, Hornpout! Most beginners crowd the eye, you're pretty much the opposite. You can tie off your body a little closer to the eye, you'll have a little shorter head, which is ok.

I bet they'll all catch fish!

P.S. I did a Step by Step on my blog on tying a Magog Smelt; the basics will hold true for tying most hairwing streamers (there's also a post on my blog on tying a featherwing streamer). I'll put the smelt link here, if the moderators don't want it up, they can freely delete the link. you'd just have to go to the blog and look around. Have fun: http://theriverscourse.blogspot.com/...gog-smelt.html
