When I find a fly I like in a forum that says it is in the database, I am unable to access it. I click on the link and it takes me to the main menu. I got to the database and try to search by keyword and I am sent to the main menu. Most recently I tried searching by tyers name and the fly was not there. What am I doing wrong? Thanks.

how to access Fly Pattern Database

Milkman ... the database is part of the site that's not sufficiently kept up. Sometimes, it seems to work fine. More often, though, it takes repeated tries to get proper responses.
Good luck with that.

I just tried it using the Browse by Member and it seemed to be working just fine. I tried three different folks including me, and the two patterns that I submitted a long time ago were still there. Was there any flies displayed by the tier that you searched for? Did you try any others that were listed?

Thanks Mike. Good to know it's not my inability to click on a link. Basically great site, I can deal with the glitches.
Thanks to the administrator for keeping this site alive.

you must have some magical powers to view "by materials"
heres what i get when clicking on "deerhair"
white screen and thats it
Fly tyers sure have a way at making things difficult
Why do you look at a persons profile after they make a post?
