Your Weenie coughed up some hair balls, just kidding. Looking good keep up the work and enjoy the time with the grandkids.

Those flies will catch fish. They look good to me.

I'm unsure what the two hackled black flies are from the picture. The rule for hackle length on Catskill style dry flies are 1.5x the hook gap. I use that rule on buggers too.

Green Weenies will catch fish, are simple to tie, and require minimal (manufactured) materials, I think the disdain stems from that. I wouldn't concern yourself with said disdain.

They look really good to me. I would fish with them. What are the 2-flys at the top right? Hard to tell from the pic.

Those will catch fish For sure. Bodies, thorax, and wing cases all look good.

The one flies body is a bit smaller, but nothing too bad. The tails are a bit varying in length on your nymph, and would be my only critique.

Your Beadhead nymphs look good, and I am sure you will slam trout on them.
