A critique about art. People have been murdered in the paintings world over that. Interpretation of what you see is subjective. You see a green car where I see a blue car. We are both right. From a fishing fly how can one man say there is something wrong with another mans fly. Only the man who fishes it can whittle out the flaws.
I have caught fish where the gptippet underwing is far beyond the hook bend with the rest of the wing the standard length. It is an ugly thing in the eye of art.
There is no doubt that an evolution in your proportion vision happens. I think there in lies the flaw. A new tyer is pleased and even proud of his first post. Hearing all the flaws that a 20 year tyer could point out may make a man burn his materials and take up crotcheting.
So my comments on a mans fly will always be what I like about a classic salmon fly not what he is missing. As in I like a tag a little shorter than what your displaying. Interpreted it means your tag is way too long. He can not be offended by what I said and maybe it helps his proportion vision to evolve.

That link didnt work for me.

A 4 inch 6x magnifyer with a beige 8x10 background card and a 100w spotlight all 12 inches or so from the vise is what works for my eyes. Tried tying with reading glasses but trying to pick up materials gave me a headache.
The magnifyer is close enough to me that field of vision is only the background card with a little hair of table at the bottom edge. I dont tie in the summer as the light puts off a lot of heat and a 60w isnt enough light. That and Im fishing more than at home.

Years ago I remember doing up a sheet with the size to measurement conversions. No idea what happened to that.
