The soft hackle is very nice, could start back on hook shank a wee bit more (over top of barb) other wise very nice.
The midge looks good except for the tail, too long shorten it by 2/3, midges have almost no tail and most times not just an appendage or gills there.
Thanks Sandfly, I appreciate your input. The last fly that you were critiquing as a midge is actually a very small mayfly nymph, thus the tails and soft hackle collar. Easy mistake though especially in that small of a size, and if the fish take it for a midge, I'm still willing to catch them!!!
