They look pretty good to me. I hear ya on the problem of stacking hair toward the eye of the hook. I have problems with that as well. This weekend, I would take a pinch of deer hair, take two wraps with the thread and tighten down to spin it. After secure, push hard back on the deer hair and make you next wrap with thread immediately in front of the clump you just laid down, constantly pushing the deer hair toward the tail section of the fly. After a few turns of the thread, lay your next pinch of deer hair down and continue the process. By pushing back hard on the deer hair and making a few wraps in front of the clump you just laid down, you have a tight bunched deer hair bug. For me it just gets a little harder stacking and spinning deer hair close to the eye of the hook. Keep up the good work Quentin.
