My God i can see it now, A controversy is buiding up, The Great Godfather, KA now seems to take all the bows for the Flatwing.
If he reads this Link, we are in for some heated discussions.
I for one, an really looking forword to your research,hope it doesn't take too long.
For some unknown reason this guy really bugs me, he seems to be a know it all, when it comes to fly tying.
I'm in youur corner.
Joe

Joe..forget it... I don't think we need to get involved with any controversies... I have had enough to last a lifetime. I am looking at the origination of several common patterns and we know KA did not originate the Flat Wing which he knows as well but he has popularized it far more than the orginal tyers. the same can be said of certain Tarpon flys...so lets keep it above board. That being said I appreciate your feelings though.
