New Feature Articles

Website Changes

• The format for Fishing Report and some other pages have been upgraded with "accordion" sections. This reduces the clutter on the page and allows users to focus on the information they are seeking.
• The Home page has been reformatted to highlight new feature articles.
• Various bugs--computer, not aquatic!--where eliminated.
• Website security was improved, which is why you now see "https" as part of the URL instead of "http".
• All ads have been removed from Westfly.
• Coming Up: Some reformating of the Fly Pattern and Entomology pages. More bug fixes.
