    Nice first fly. Looks better than a lot of first flies. Keep up the good work.

    Congrats! Let the addiction continue, now to go out and catch a nice fish on that first fish and immediately retire it, you will enjoy looking at it in the years to come.

    That's a great first fly that should undoubtedly land you a fish or two, congratulations. It looks much better than my first, stick with it!

    Like dean said, tie another half dozen at least and watch your progress. When I am tying a new to me fly, I like to do at least a dozen. The first 2-3 flies are where I'm usually getting it dialed in, the rest are usually money.
