    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! ;-)

    That's great, Mason. We'll probably be starting up another salmon/steelhead swap sometime in the late Fall. Keep posted.
