    Fly tying database

    A few days ago it was brought to my attention that the fly tying database can no longer accept uploads. I looked into the situation and as it turns out, the software is outdated and is not compatable with the new server version.

    Of course I can easly fix this but before I dump $$$ into it, I would need 2 items:

    1. A commitment from at least a half a dozen people who will use it and contribute at least a few flies every few weeks. Duplicate flies are not a problem as we all understand that everyone likes to put their own twist on things.

    2. A commitment from at least 2 people who will moderate it and ensure that they upload a few of their own flies and patterns on a regular basis (at least once per week from each person) for people to see.

    If you're going to commit, please do so with your word of commitment in mind. In other words, don't volunteer if you plan on uploading your favorite picture of your favorite fly then playing a disappearing act on us!

    Please let me know and I'll install the new software if we get the commitments.

    Re: Fly tying database

    DC,

    I can post one a month if that will help.

    Most of my flys are very basic patterns, probably good for the beginners here, and they are fish catchers.

    I would like to see detailed tying pics with step by step instructions in the database.

    I like to see guys and gals post pics of their flys, their nice to look at, but a pic is not of much use to me without tying instructions.

    A fly tying database would be very useful for me, but if you don't get the commitment you're looking for, I understand not investing the money in it.

    Lets hope our professional tyers come through.

    Cdog

    Re: Fly tying database

    I'd be both a consumer and contributor. Yeah, there's lots of fly databases online out there, but I like the idea of "our own".... ones with patterns made by guys you know, who fish at places you know, and who you can get in further contact with. I find that to be a very valuable distinction w/ the rest of what's out there in cyberspace.

    Re: Fly tying database

    ... also, this might be just me, but I had a hard time tracking it down just now even though I knew it existed. I'm guessing that the most of just typically just cruise through recent messages, and haven't incorporated the sidebar-embedded goodies into our typical routines. Maybe some extra publicity / easier linkage would get a project like this more into the mainstream? Just some food for thought.

    Re: Fly tying database

    I suppose I could commit to sticking a few in the Beginner section. I didn't know it was there or I would have volunteered earlier.

    Re: Fly tying database

    couldn't seem to edit my previous post... what i meant to add was that out of the various ways to get there, the usual route I used to take to it (which is still there) is right there under my nose, but has the title 'product reviews'. That actually kind of deters me in a way, as I'm not normally looking to buy anything, though I'm always on the prowl for patterns. It kind of leads me to believe that I'm going to see a bunch of reviews of the latest Sage rod or something.

    Re: Fly tying database

    I would definitely enjoy and frequent this database. I'm new to tying, so I don't know that I can commit to contributing right now, but I'd certainly like to as my abilities/confidence increase.

    Nope, I found it on the internet somewhere. I liked it because it wasn't huge. And I've always wanted to be a stick figure.

    That's funny.

    Would be even better if the trout were to jump out of the water during the fight.

    Re: Fly tying database

    This topic was brought up a while ago.

    Yeah..yeah..yeah....

    People will ask for it and make a post or two, then we all get to watch it fall by...

    Just like the "Shout board" everyone wanted it and after what four days.. ZIPPO...
