And yeah, probably like yourself every place that has an archive of fish disks always seem to have .lha even for full disk contents.
Were the original fish disks back in the day bootable on their own or were you expected to boot workbench first before inserting the fish disk? was there some sort of menu system if they were bootable?

I'd represent everything as packages and disks as shown in the mocks. I'm just saying it would be very easy to make each file name (in the mock for "Disk page" as a red link to the file itself - here - in addition to the entire disk zipped up, which you could download from the top of the page as well.
That's what I'm trying to say, except that I would host them here and not hot-link to external sites. But I'd also host the original Zipped up packages of all of the original disks. ADFs would be ideal, but I don't think I have an easy means to do that (nor has anyone else ever tried to do that... it would take a ton of work - more than I can offer right now).Freds disks, ordered by disk and all programs presented in .lha format if you were to provide links to individual programs this might be a good resource to use as it would preserve links to the correct disk/version of an app.
