Lots of good stuff going on there for sure! Overall, I like it and hesitate to offer too much advice, since most of my “married” wings end up in nasty divorce. I’m far from being an expert around here. The proportions look a bit funny to my eyes, but that’s purely my own aesthetics, and probably in part due to the eclectic mix of styles. I think the suggestion for a collar would add considerably, as well as a few more strips of goose in the wing. Again, just personal tastes though; if you were going for a bit sparser look this fly works just fine as is too.

Shawn’s suggestion of finding an expert to tie with is an excellent one! Anyone know if Scott (BCbound) is still tying, or is he too busy with kids and family stuff these days? Even via messages here I got some big help from him in my own progression, and always enjoyed seeing the flies he posted.

Keep at it,
JB
