We all had to start somewhere,I'm sure a hungry mackeral or pollack wouldn't refuse it,Keep at it your tying won't get worse anyway fair play for giving it a go,and always keep an eye out for materials they appear in the most unlikely places,I make great sand eel imitations with the help of my border collie the long hair is great,also try a pound shop and look at the party and art&craft stuff mite get lucky and it's cheap :D

Nice work. Far better than my first effort.

It'll definitely catch fish.
