Actually the links do work, the site just has the titles muddled up. Which is a shame as this was one of the real Gems of the forum, and a whole lot of work went into it. I have noticed a few requests from members to fix it.

If Admin would like to know how to easily fix the links I can help.

Best regards
Jim
That would be a real asset to the forum if it is possible

mr_e when the thread was started around 10 years ago, in it's prime, it was a joy to behold, back then lots of the posters used hosting sites for their images and these were linked to here. Sometime later those hosting sites wanted money to continue to host images, or certain posters fell off the radar along with their photos.

The thread has lost a lot of pictures due to the above, but I felt it was worth reviving due to not all images being lost, and it being a good source of The Classic flies and their many variations by some wonderful tyers.

Even though some images are lost, i believe it's a great reference for many.

Hope this explains it.

Best regards
Jim
