Thanks for all that you do. I would be glad to contribute to our fine
magazine. How? I am an average fly tier and have access to a digital camera,
but I have never prepared a presentation electronically. Maybe that could be
the subject for "Tying Tips", and we could work on our contributions
together from beginning to end. I would love to learn how to do this and I
bet I'm not alone. Good Luck and let me know how I can help. ~ Jim Gustin
Dear rusty rat:
Thank you for your question, and my answer to your question is, "You
have already done it!" You see, it doesn't require a digital camera, or
even a regular camera. It does not have to be a finished manuscript, just a
question, tip, or technique! They all will get the byline for that weeks
"Tying Tips"! If I have any questions, or further inquiries,
yes - we can work together on the article. If I need outside sources, I will
contact others for their input. But the end product is, it was your
letter that started the process, and all who contribute will get accorded
As the person who is responsible for ensuring a new article every week, I
only get the byline when it is my writing and idea. The whole
premises of Fly Anglers OnLine, is it is a site on the Internet for anglers
to share their knowledge. It is not a site of professional writers who
happen to fly fish.
All who write for FAOL are equal, no matter the years of
experience, or level of expertise. So congratulations, you are now a
published contributor to the Greatest Fly Angling Site on the Internet!
Sincerely ~ Parnelli
Please check out the Fly Tying Section, on the
Bulletin Board, on FAOL too.
If you have any questions, tips, or techniques; send them along.
Someone else thought up most of this material before we did,
they just forgot to tell anyone about it. Or else we just
forgot about it, while learning something else. Let us
share with each other, all the things we know!
