  • Michael P. Parrella follows the history of entomology in fly fishing, from the first recorded artificial fly that dates back to historian Claudius Aileanus describing an insect Macedonians were trying to imitate with feathers, to modern-day fly design. Read the article published in the Spring 2013 issue of American Entomologist freely online via Oxford Journals.
