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.

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.

Hi milkman,

 

 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?

 

 Regards,

                  Mark

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.

fixing the problem is not a high priority on the forums to do list

 

do not look for a fix any time soon


Someone stole my coffee cup. Now I have to go to the police station and look at mug shots.

If im looking for more specific flies i.e. deerhair, I just go to the browse by tag and look through the thousand or so tags. Its a pain in the you know what, but it works!

Flytire, I do not browse by material. I browse by tag, and search for the specific tag I want. It's like doing a word search, lol, but if you have the patience it works!
