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!

I have that issue. So Sandy, you still live in Bozeman? You still tie the Bankrobbers?

 

PM me with your snail mail address. I have a complete set of FFM from vol 1 issue 1 until I cancelled my subscription a couple of years ago. I also have the early issues of Fly Fisher, the magazine of the FFF. I will photocopy the article and mail it to you.

There are 2 separate & different catalog indexes for Fly Fisherman magazines listed by fly patterns, authors & locations covering the earlier years of publication.

Most likely the article is on the bookshelves of fly fishing, fishing & boating research literature.

SliverCreek. Thank you. I think a scanned copy is already in the mail.  Yes I still make BankRobbers, but more often as Minnows now rather than as Stonefly Nymphs....as I originally wrote about.  Was that Fly Tyer Magazine?  I think so.

You live near Silver Creek?  It's fall streamer season there now. Damn.  I drove through Picabo a week ago, on my way back home from Oregon.  But didn't have time to fish.
