This swap was a lot of fun. Some really interesting materials and a good variety of flies that can be used to fish Salmon.

Thanks to everyone who participated.

Still waiting, but when I get them, I would like to post a picture of them on the Drift Wood I found. I want to display them and any other donated Salmon flies on this really cool piece of wood and hang it on my new house/painted wall! ;-)
