I like it. I wish my flies looked that good in a close-up pic like that. At least they stay together after catching lots of fish.

Beautiful tie! Thanks for sharing.

I would take this as a HUGE compliment. If the master of perfection says, "A bit sparse in the wing", you have really done something.

A critique of one of my flies would be two pages long.

Well done. Looks to me as though your rendition of the T&L should yield some grabs.
