This thread... A lot of good patterns are being lost to this thread IMO. It's a nice read I guess but at 1300+ pages and no real way to sort things out, can I ask what's the draw vs adding a new "thread here showing your pattern with a "Pattern" prefix, like Scott does with SBS? Would you consider letting me split out old posts in this thread to their own "Pattern"?

I guess my interest is on the organization side of things. Using separate threads with those index's add some informational value when displayed on the "Washington Fly Fishing" search index. I moved one of Scott's patterns as I'm suggesting and here's what it displays as now vs just popping this thread back up.
