Where to Find It
Throughout the course of this site and in particular this 'Fly Tying Page', there have been untold numbers of historical questions raised about tying in general, techniques, and patterns. I believe two of the best sources for the history of many American fly patterns was the Fly Tyer magazine from inception, which then merged into American Angler/Fly Tyer, up to about 2000. Almost as good was Fly Fisherman, also from inception through about 2000. If anyone has those issues you have a wealth of information. It's just too bad that the publishers did not develop a 'master index' of article titles in addition to a subject, author or name.
