Keep up the good work.

When I first started tying, this is what I struggled with the most. I'd dub up this big ole noodle of dubbing and get these ridiculous bodies. A cardinal rule of tying is "Less is more"

Could not agree more, wabi! That's been my experience, too.

Now, when it comes to catching fishermen; well that's a different story and usually nothing short of perfect will do....

Hi Flyguy,I think you have done pretty well as they will all catch Fish,even though it's good to tie Flies which look nice,after catching a few Fish they all seem to be a little munched up,I have one fly which I retired after 11 Fish,it's a real mess.
I'm often tempted to again use it as I believe it will still catch Fish.
Brian.
