Very nice S.B.S. tutorial, with a decidedly "fishy" result.

Howdy All;

Bill, Thanks for posting that link !!!
What I enjoyed most about that video is that I could actually SEE ( :D ), how the hackle was mounted and wraped.
Generally all one sees is a hand or a close-up of a thumb in the way... Slowly the waters start to clear ..... :)

Great Video !! A lot of times tying videos will drag on but this one was precise and to the point. :)
Looks like it will be very easy to tie also !!
Thanks Bill !
