John, you should enjoy the tying and never get caught up in the competition. I learn from everyone here and never judge anyone else’s work.
I’m still of the opinion that only the fish should judge. Keep on tying and posting.
I have to crack a joke once in a while just to make sure we don’t take ourselves too seriously. However, Geoff, I agree! There are many very beautiful flies tied by very artistic people on this app. I study many of their patterns and I am constantly picking up new methods and learning about new materials. I am a teacher and coach so I am a big believer in the saying, that we never stop learning. That said, keep tying and keep posting! I guarantee people will take something from your methods and styles, probably me! 😂
@Stonefly18 I have seen some of your flies, and for a beginner you are very good. I myself say to people all the time that your skills doesnt evaluate if you are a beginner or not. It is the time and experience. I am still not an experienced tier. Keep tying and you will get better. The same as listening to the advice you get.
