Years ago--in the early days of the net--there was a guy who periodically posted a bibliography of Fly Fisherman Magazine articles, listing titles and authors and perhaps, (I can't really remember) an abstract article description.
I can't find a copy and I've looked. Does anybody remember the name of the guy who kept that list? Or know of an online copy I can look at?
I need to know the date of a John Gierach piece about "Flies or Lures" that appeared in the early to mid-1980s. Perhaps someone with a magazine collection might know the date of that article. Then I wouldn't need the bibiography.
That John Gierach article talked about flies made by AK Best and some other guy with a weird Scottish name....Pitten something. Perhaps it was Pittendrigh.
Fly Fisherman sells old magazines but they don't go back that far. What I'd really like is a scanned copy of the article. Perhaps I should try contacting John Gierach. Now there's an idea!
