Re: Novice tyer looking for critque/pointers
Take a look at the Black Ghost that flytire posted previously in this thread. The body has a very slight taper to it & a smooth transition. Yours has a slight bump at the back end, probably the result of over lapping the tinsel rib when you started the body floss. It's not a big issue, and doesn't affect the fishing qualities of the fly, but aesthetically, the body should progress smoothly along it's length. Same with the rib. You've done an exceptional job with that, as it's not uncommon for novices to get a kink in the rib.
Remember, no one likes to be behind the big truck, but that's better than being under it!
