New Section Name

:idea: I vote we just rename this section "Norm's Page". :idea:

If that means Norm continues to post his stellar creations on the page, I agree. I've been seeing Norm's flies for about 30 years, back when we were both on FAOL a lot. I never get tired of seeing his work and reading the back ground of the fly.

I am surprised the FAOL fly tying board wasnt named after him years ago.

Is there a petition we need to sign? I will sign it right away! Great suggestion Carl! Keep up the good work Norm! We love every minute of it!

Norm, appreciate the info you post when you have it. When I read the name of the book you got the info on the Foxhole from I went and looked on my bookshelf. Yup, there it was, in the "to read" section. Thanks for the bump to action.

As it turns out, Don Corey, the President of my fly club and owner of the local fly shop dressed the Stimulator for Ballard's book.

Norm certainly deserves a page. He puts a lot more time and effort into tying than many of us combined and his photos are always top notch. I can count on there being something in the new posts almost every day because Norm take the time to share his work.

I know you all mean well but it would be unfair to all of the other excellent tyers here to have a category named for just one person

I’m fine with tying a variety of patterns and posting them to the appropriate forum categories. I enjoy tying a variety of patterns and posting them here and on other forums

Thank you for the consideration but it’s not necessary
