You are doing fine! I honestly would not have known you had just started tying flies by looking at those streamers- they look like someone with a lot more experience tied them.

On the copper johns and prince nymphs, make certain you tie your biots in shorter. But your ties are looking good!

Thanks tbblom! And my local fly shop owner said he didn't recommend spinning deer hair for someone just starting but I really like the look of it. So I went for it anyways haha.. And Ted nice fly! Dang that sucker is huge!!!

Here's a mouse I just tied up

Quill Gordon Emerger
since new Practical Patterns video was posted i couldnt help but tie 1/2 dozen of them . sz.16 (only size of hooks i have for emergers right now)

had to use squirrel tail fibers for tail and didnt have UV stuff so just used little head cement on the body
it also says its mainly East Coast pattern, but im going to give it a try here in CO
