Dick... I hope he would... practicing tying flies from different tyers only helps me get better.... I think.... when I copied flies from your book, I struggled with many of them since I did them from the recipies and the picture..not a step by step I did not have all the materials and, as you might have seen, took the liberty to make some material changes...but it was a good process for helping me with different styles.
