    Hah! I found a problem with the hi-tech recipe sites -- they don't include patterns I use that are well known in these parts.

    For example: No Purple Joe, No Borden Special ... yet my book of 1,000 pattern recipes does include those flies. I didn't check any others because if the sites don't include those two, chances are, they are missing a lot.

    So.... guess I won't be burning my pattern books anytime soon.

    Gene this thousand recipe book you have...is it made by you or was it a purchase? I wouldn't mind having a book like that. I've also found the website lacks a lot of the step by steps. Recipes are great but sometimes the SBS teaches me tricks and techniques.

    The interwebs seems to work for me. Never had a problem finding patterns I'm interested in tying. I usually look at a pattern and let my imagination run from there...Books are super helpful and great references but I'm to cheap! Between Instagram, Facebook, and misc. websites there's more than I can handle.

    i like GOOGLE to find recipes

    no ONE book contains ALL patterns as well as no ONE website contains ALL patterns and its no fault of either one of them.

    Charlie's Fly Box has many patterns posted with a decent amount of how-to detail.

    Thomas, nope I didn't write the book -- taking all the photos would have been a bitch! It doesn't have much in the way of step by step but just the recipes -- which is normally what I'm looking for. It was written by Randle Scott Stetzer

    Here's a link to the book.

    http://www.amazon.com/s/ref=nb_sb_noss?url=search-alias=stripbooks&field-keywords=1000 fly patterns

    (I'm not pushing Amazon.com, it simply shows the book... you can probably buy it just about anywhere that sells flyfishing books.)
