I think the focus is great, but I thing you should use some colored paper for the background. With darker flies lime green, tan, and  blue works best.

2. It's the deckhand's fault

I meant to but was to busy trying to tie and take pictures at the same time that I forgot :) think my other pictures in the other part of the forum I used green background

Cheers chugbug will definitely give it a read :)

Just read it all, that was a good read, my next klinkhåmer (which I also found out is spelt like that and not the way I first spelt it), will hopefully be better. :)
