Im in, #6 slump buster tied in natural color. In the water it's a killer sculpin looker. Let me know if that will work.

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. I have to decide on a pattern. Sounds like a good excuse to go "look" at some materials!
I've been fishing since I could walk and it's all I really like to do.

I have two swaps due by the 21st of next month so maybe a week more than that would be nice.

Kevin, as of now I have four mini sculpin heads tied and one in small which are pretty big. If there are any more swappers I will tie more smalls.
