Those are all very good. You see? The Mosquito is very nicely done. The Stimulator and Humpy will all come in their own good time.
What is probably most required in learning Fly Tying, is patience, and an attitude that tells us that we must allow ourselves a chance to learn.
By the way, I have a great quote for you:
The following Narrative is a voice-over by actor Morgan Freeman playing "Red"
in the movie, "SHAWSHANK REDEMPTION"; "Red" Narrates:
"In 1966, Andy Dufresne escaped from Shawshank prison.
All they found of him was a muddy set of prison clothes, a bar of soap, and an old rock hammer, damn near worn down to the nub.
I remember thinking it would take a man six hundred years to tunnel through the wall with it. Old Andy did it in less than twenty.
Oh, Andy loved geology. I imagine it appealed to his meticulous nature.
An ice age here, a million years of mountain building there.
Geology is the study of pressure and time.
That's all it takes really, PRESSURE and TIME."---from the movie
"SHAWSHANK REDEMPTION" starring Tim Robbins as "Andy".
You are doing very well.
