Don't know if this is the right place for my question.  If not please move it to where it should be.

 

Several of you have referenced other sites that you use.  If you don't mind sharing those sites I would really appreciate it, or you can PM me if you prefer.  All of the sites I have visited in the past hold no interest for me so looking  to expand.

 

Thanks in advance

This is, by far, the best site about fly fishing and fly tying I've ever visited.  It's not TOO busy, nor difficult to navigate.  The people are some of the most understanding entities I know.  It's why I am on here so many times a day.  I don't go to any other fly fishing related sites.

I agree about this site but I also like to explore other sites.  I often go to Tenkara sites as well since I use that style in some cases.

 

Thanks Tier, I'll check it out although it sounds more Alaska dedicated.

Only other comparable site for fly tying IMO would be FAOL. But, that place can be just a real fight fest over there. While we have an issue or two here and there on this site, it's hard to beat for the atmosphere.

No It isn't Alaska dedicated. It is actually more mid east.

It's the mid-west to us ... but from far west guys like TIER ... it's east, I guess.
