March 12th, 2010 - Fly Tyer Magazine likes our stuff!

While enjoying a morning coffee and noodling around the web looking for a pattern to tie on a rainy Sunday, I stumbled upon the online forums at Fly Tyer Magazine.  The forums have lots of neat categories, such as Member Fly Patterns, Realistic Fly Tying, and something that really caught my eye... Fly Tying Tools!
But before posting my Fly Tying Mirror on the site I figured it would be proper etiquette to ask the forum moderator if that would be OK.  I was happy when I found the moderator to be David Klausmeyer, the editor of FTM!  David is a great guy.  He got back to me right away, encouraging me to post the mirror on his site.  In fact, David has shown real interest in the mirror, and I quote:
"I think that's one of the coolest things I've seen in a long, long time."
"Finally, something new in a sport where there is very little that is really new."
Do you have any idea how exciting it is to be given the opportunity to speak to to the editor of a magazine that you love, and hear him say that he likes what you are doing?  I haven't stopped grinning yet (and it is now Friday!) 
And the best part of all of this?  Look for the Trout's Eye View - Fly Tying Mirror in the Summer Issue of Fly Tyer Magazine, due out in early June.  Life is good.
