Roy, Nice free style start. The tinsel reversal on the body isn't something that is often seen, but is interpretive and interesting. Because free styles are subjective, comments of classic style wouldn't make a lot of sense. I like the colour choice. As for comments, I'd have put on a denser butt. Tie in the ostrich herl close to the removal point, where the flues/barbules are denser and slightly shorter. The effect is not as wispy, and you can wind four good turns. Also, if you want to even up the wing tips, you could pluck/break the fibers with tweezers, or taper them with parallel scissor cuts. Michael

Orvis has a vise mounted magnifier and a spotlight. I have one from fifteen or so years ago. I use it for small stuff and detail on bodywork on salmon flies. https://www.orvis.com/p/bright-light-and-magnifier/52y2 The mag on mine is slightly larger. I mounted it on another vise stem, so it's not in the way of my tying, and when I just need light, I can move it on my tying table. Michael
