  9. Last week I had the opportunity to sit down with Walt Cary and watch him tie. Those of you that don't know Walt, he is known down east as "The Popping Bug King" He is the man behind Walt's Poppers. After watching him tie for awhile he invited me back to his shop to talk some more, how could I turn him down? After several hours we had talked about everything from friends, cars, the military, boats, fishing from north of Quebec Canada to Florida and of course poppers. It was neat to watch him do something with such ease that I make so complicated. "Thanks Walt" Craig

Bream, thanks for letting me join the swap this year. just about every pattern was a new one to me. i look forward to getting in on the ones coming up. i need to apologize to you guys for this months pattern being a little on the big size this time around. i ordered my materials for this swap thinking that a size 8 would be ok. i did not think about the pattern getting bigger as i glued them together. once i find the link for the pattern i will post it craig
