    Default SBS as a resource and inspiration.

    I was wondering how many forumers, uses the SBS fly tying section as an inspiration and a resource for flies and ideas?

    I regularly page thru it and scan the flies and the methods for a "fresh" idea, or an inspiration for a new fly to tie.

    There are some truly great flies on the SBS boards and some great techniques shown by a SBS photo sequence.
    Worth the time to page thru it and get some inspiration.

    I'm busy going through the "Latest flies from the vice" thread and been given a ton of ideas and motivation so far. I've been a bit slack on the tying front and this has helped light the cracker big time.

    I did my first SBS a few days ago. And have learnt a lot from others.
    Hope to see a lot more in the future

    Must Agree I get a lot of info and an occasional Wow! moment when viewing New flies from the vice and SBS's.

    Often an old forgotten technique is brought back into sharp focus. Keep them coming guys.
