At first I thought you reversed one of those pics as it appears you wrapped the body tinsel the opposite way on the second - then I realized they are two different flies. The only issue I see with the crowded head is that a Turle knot might not seat well and you will need to use a non-slip loop or improved clinch to fish it. But so what. Nice ties and fish love black. A bit curious about the knife - do you have to varnish the handle, or is the leather sufficiently waterproof? Cool work. Thanks for posting.
