djh262 and Mandog you are the last tow.  The swap is full.  I'm looking forward to seeing this years collection.

All set for Monday's mail. These are on a sz 16. Was going to use 18's but it appeared a might small for April's waters. I was able to use all the scraps out of my bench waste bag for these and I was able to scrap enough hooks together by taking apart some old deliquent used flies that I have kept in a jar the past five years . They'll catch.
