Nice set of flies! However, do you possibly have the photos in larger resolution? I'd love to have a look on the details!

Hi Anton, (from th U.K).  There's a lot of "good stuff" going on in there, so congratulations & it's far better than my & many others 1st attempt's. Obviously there are elements that need a bit of work on & material selection will improve as you get further involved. There is LOADS of help out there & dependant on where you live, you maybe able to find a mentor close to where you live.  I "mentor" a guy, who'se not far from me, & have also done it online, the former method is far, far better as any potential errors can often be spotted before you're even aware of what they are.  As I say there's loads of info out there, & perhaps a specialist dealer is a good place to start, so take a few clicks over to John McCoy's www.feathersmc.com to start your journey, as he's about the biggest specialist out there & is hyper-helpful.

Hello Arkle, thanks for your input.

I'm not aware of any guys near me that tie flies, especially salmon flies. I live in Finland. Maybe I haven't searched good enough. At my local fishing shop there is one guy  that's tying flies, though from what I can see his not that into tying salmon flies.

Is it possible that you could evolve further on your feedback. I wish to know what major issues I need to work on. I know my wings aren't that good. I find it hard to get the tips align correctly. When I marry wings the issue always seem to be the tips. They don't merry well. Can you give me any pointers on this?

PS. Thanks for the link, I will check it out.

Nice, I like it.

PS... How do you get the tip of the feathers to align so nicely? I've big problems with that.
