That way when Spring does get here I don't have to knock the rust off while I'm actually fishing. I haven't done that in the last few years, but I think I will this year. I've already been casting yarn out in the snow. Working on my casting stroke. 9:00 3:00 with the late rotation and late haul. I blame my Canadian friend.
    Dan: Interesting way to get in some casting practice. I might try that this year, my girlfriend likes to ice fish so we will probably get out later this winter. They have been having a weird winter so far and the lake she normally fishes on hasn't completely frozen over yet.

    He's got you on a mission huh? I cast that way sometimes, when I'm trying to carry a little more line or depending on how the wind is blowing but it gets pretty tricky. Your timing has to be spot on or the line will crash.

    I'm pretty far back on this one...

    Guys, These are some awsome looking poppers! I can't wait to get out there and give them a go. Larry....is that thing big enough!?!?!? LOL! I know just the spot I'll be throwing that one. There's a big sunken log in a stretch I fish often that has a real pig living behind it. I've had her come out to look a few times but never been able to get her to eat. I'm thinking gargantupopper may be just the ticket. When they get that big they tend to get a little lazy, so a mouthful may be just what she's been waiting for. Thanks for letting me be part of this swap. It was my first, but I'm signed up in 2 more. Let the good times roll!

    Mine showed up today. Awsome flies guys. I can't wait till Spring. I assume the rest of you have yours to, because mail comes here on horseback still. At least it seems that way.

    I haven't seen mine yet, strangely enough! I'm not too far from Mark either.

    Received mine in the mail yesterday, great looking poppers everyone. I can't wait to get them wet this summer. I have the perfect spot to try these bad boys out!
