It's gotta be mid-winter and WAAAYYY too cold to fish. We're ALL going nuts, or thread balls.

So I tied a few on Wed and this PM still more to go and I may get out for a few this weekend and have the fish be the ultimate judges ..… a few on Wed came out a lil ‘plump’ (heavy on dubing) in the middle but I think that was getting used to the bead. I figured out how to thread it thinner B4 I wrap and the last few have come out like the photo below. I think they are coming out ok but like to know what you guys think?

Also what fly should I move onto next?

Also, also on this one below .. if u look closely I finish it with a cross wrap of thread on dubbing … does it mat it down to much or am I good?

Stag, you are just falling right into it aren't you? Good tying to you.
That fly is fine, you're good my man. Although with the thread wrapped like that in the middle it might get torn off in short order.

You're putting to much pressure on the thread as you wrap it sounds like. As far as how you tied off is there any particular reason for doing that? personally I'd do the finishing wraps just behind the bead or without a bead at the head of the fly just behind the eye.

As far as the next fly to tie, you look like you have the nack for this style fly. Perhaps you could move to a scud, with the addition of a wire rib and a strip of plastic, or nymph skin or the like you're ready to tie a scud style pattern.

Thanx l2, just finished another one looser and was better … only snapped once. Per tied off, I finished the first one up front and not sure why I’ve been going behind. U just reminded and will go back to that. Do u finish all nymphs up front?

I don't even know how you could have done that. Is that the thread at the rear of the hook? Where are you tying off?
Overall you are on the right track. You should start your dubbing at the rear of the hook and dub your way up to the bead. Tie off right behind the bead. There are times when you need to double back over something, but a simple pattern like this should be one straight shot from the bend to the bead.

There are some patterns where you end up at the back of the fly but not too many, but then again there could be some I don't know of. Yes, you normally finish the fly off at the front.
