Fly pattern data base?

Recommended Posts

Before the new format, it was really easy to look up fly patterns like the Ray Bergman Collection, Don Bastion flies. Right now I'm looking for the SBS for this fly,

But now I can't find it. It seems it was a link to a Hatches Magazine archive or something.

Anybody know how to find it?

OK, I found the Bergman collection from the Hatches website, but when I click on the "fly patterns" button on the Hatches Magazine menu it redirects me back to this site, the same as it dose when I click on the blue "Rainbow Runner" link on the "Rainbow Runner" page in the link above. It's a circular trap.

I just Googled it. The recipe that Deadbird is looking for can be found using Google also.  When I copied the link for that reply, it "appears" to only link and paste the picture. I still don't think that you can delete an entire reply post here, so I didn't add that reply in case it didn't have the written content that went with the recipe. 

Regards,

Yeah, I kept Googling it too, but everything I found just kept coming back to the picture with no SBS. What's your search engine? Bing was worthless, Yahoo was worthless, I found the most on Firefox but still....

I used the search function in the upper right and found the picture but no list of materials.  It was there under the old format.  I used DuckDuckGo instead of Google and ended up with the same post, a picture and a blue link that led back to the home page of flytyingforum's list of forums.

The flickr  link that Norm just posted at the bottom was the one that I tried attaching to my post yesterday. Like I wrote before, the same emerald shiner picture showed up in my post, but it didn't look like anything else went with it, including that link. Just using Google works pretty well for most searches. Using different word combinations, clicking on the cache symbol to the write of a link sometimes will get it to work, even using Google images to search for harder to get fly tying materials or patterns when the normal Google search doesn't find anything. You just have to play around with it.

Regards,

When I used the search function all I got was current threads not old threads, should I have gone into the archives?

Thanks!  I'm going to write it down now.  Salted Emerald Shiners are excellent bait for stocked brook trout where I fish in northwestern Pa.  I've been trying to find a  fly to replace them for catch and release.
