Hey those looks great! I am still in the early stages of learning to tie, my biggest issue is that I still put way too much material on.  Mostly tie deceivers and clousers, in assorted sizes and colors. (lots of white and blue). I did figure out how to tie a squid fly that is basically a wooly bugger.
best,

what vice are you using?

I have my old $5 one the tying class instructor gave me, have been looking at some of the cheap rotary guys on ebay... not sure if I will end up getting what I pay for.
