Does anyone remember seeing a popular article about the Rev. AE Eaton and his influence on Frederic M Halford from a few years ago? I am trying to track one down, but I don't know where it may have occurred. I'm hoping the author might even been lurking here. If so, send me a PM, please. Thanks for any help from anyone! McCafferty did one about Eaton and some others, but this is different from that one.

Hi Luke,

I don't know of any article in a fly fishing periodical, but Ernest Schwiebert in his Nymphs II writes a fair amount on their relationship as well as Eaton's other contributions as the "foremost ephemeropterist of the latter 19th century".

Regards,

Kurt

was able to track down the author - the article isn't quite done yet. I'd assumed it had been published already, but it still is being worked on. Thanks for the help anyway, Kurt.

Hi Luke,

As little as it was, your welcome. Glad to hear you ran it down. Please post a follow-up when it's finally done.

BTW - I could be wrong, but I think I remember reading somewhere that Eaton was behind Halford's spur formulae for trichopterans as well.

Regards,

Kurt
