Looks good! Nice proportions on the bugger. You headed to Erie?

I've been at it a few years, and I couldn't do any better. Why did you give this up in the first place?

Half a bottle of jameson, and I can't tie a damn thing right now... but you got me thinking that I really wanna go tie a few right now. damn.

Very well done! You should see some of my first ties. I keep them around to remind me. Now my barely adequate ties look like masterpieces.

Yeah, they look good to me. A word of caution. Don't go directly from tying buggers on big hooks to midges and tricos on tiny almost invisible hooks. The direct movement from large to microscopic could lead to eyeball bleeding. I did it once and thought it was a free ride from something I took back in the early seventies.

The start of my first prince, i know it looks pretty crappy towards the head of the hook. Realized i didn't have my white biots in yet and Hen hackle. So i tried just puffing some dubbing up front but it came out crappy so i ripped it off.

Freestyle a little.

I catch fish on prince nymphs all the time and I've never bought a white biot. Tie in a little tag of white poly or something along those lines and you've got a "go2prince" as shown in an issue of fly fisherman a few months ago.

For the hackle, use a webby rooster feather that isn't suitable for anything else, or perhaps some partridge. Or just tie in a throat of rooster and be done with it.

There are tons of variations, and my guess is that the trout can't tell.
