The "Horny Damsel" renamed "Mating Damsel" in Fly Tyer magazine -- without my permission
Fly Tyer magazine contacted me to include the Horny Damsel in their summer edition. I supplied the writer with a story about how I developed the fly, materials list and mailed them samples.
Imagine my surprise when they changed the name without asking and used a fly example no professional flytier would admit to tying. When contacted, the writer blamed it on the editors and claimed not to have received the samples. They used my story though...
I normally let things go, but this upset me mainly because they didn't even bother to talk to me - easy enough to do these days.
