I only have participated in one swap, the last Christmas one. I did receive some great flies and even some extra goodies, and that was great. But I never found who received my flies. I had not realized how much it would matter to me to know how my flies would do for someone else, somewhere else. Turns out it was a huge turn off.

That would be my fault Bimini15. In trying to get everybody something appropriate to their fishing I lost track of exactly whose gift went where. I have vowed to correct that since some others have asked where theirs went and couldn't help them. This year I will make sure I have an updated list for each person's went.
