Among the most valuable assets to our research are the stock centers in the
USA, Europe, and Asia that provide us with stocks when we need them. Every
year the board that advises the USA fly stock centers meets at the fly
meeting to discuss the use of the stock centers, budgetary issues, the
services that are provided, the types of fly strains that should be
maintained, etc. Many of you are probably aware that the Bowling Green
stock center is being phased out and that the stock center in Bloomington
is being expanded. We would like to take this opportunity to obtain
suggestions for improving the services of the stock center in Bloomington.
If you have any suggestions or comments, please do not hesitate to email me
