    Mine are now done and in the mail. :)
    I wound up doing a Pink Clouser for the salt, which has worked very well for Coho and Dickson's Cop Car for fresh, which I have not yet tried out.

    Getting closer. I tied up a popper for the salt, olive/sand and blue/sand. I can't decide between the spark plug and double treble hook rig for fresh water or a baitfish pattern. :) You should see them next week sometime.

    What is the status of this swap? Are they all in the mail or are we still waiting on some slow people?

    This weekend 22 flies died when unbeknownst to me, my 3 year old niece or one of my relatives accidentally threw away a unmarked envelop that contained these creations. I was all set to take these flies to the post office on Sat when I couldn’t find the sealed envelope that contained them. After looking everywhere, we deduced that they made their way to the trash<my niece has a thing with throwing things away within her reach>. My apologies to everyone and I look forward to seeing the swap images.
