A Pitt fan, a Marshall fan, and a WVU fan are climbing a mountain and arguing about who loves their team most. The Marshall fan insists that he is most loyal and then yells,"This is for Marshall!" and jumps off the mountain. Not to be out done,The WVU fan next professes his love for his team. He screams,"This is for the Mountaineers!" and pushes the Pitt fan off the mountain.

I'm in.  Are you limiting the pool to a certain size?  Need to figure out which pattern, and the size of the party may influence that decision.

I have been looking for an excuse to order some sculpin heads and pick a nice pattern to take with me to the White or Little Red. This is a good excuse and to get a little variety in there. Hoping to go in April or May so hopefully have them in time. If not then I'll still have a few of my own. So yes, I'd like to join.

I will give it a few days to see what we get. I also need to get materials this week. If the number stays low maybe we can get a quick turn around.

Give it a couple more days to fill, I would be ok with a five or six person swap.

Kevin, I would normally jump right in but afraid I have overcommitted myself (many swaps since Jan) and decent fishing weather is finally upon me...Still if the due date was, say May 15, I would likely be unable to resist... But 7 Weeks out is not fair to folks that want to fish these patterns much sooner.

You might also rule that hooks be Saltwater friendly so patterns have crossover appeal, not usually much Salt Swapping on the board.

I like the idea, anyone can use a hook of that type. I will give it a few more days then go with what we have and maybe have a quick turnaround.

As mush as I would like to, I will have to pass. Got too much on my plate now and that dam 4 letter word (work) is catching up to me now. Tis the season....
