    Yes. Unless you want one for yourself.

    I'll probably end up tying mine on the Owner Aki 2/0 rather than the SL12S. A little more weight for the floating line guys, plus (maybe) a slightly stronger hook/point. They just came in the mail yesterday, so hopefully I'll burn through more than a couple flies for the swap this weekend.

    @E-money that slider pattern looks killer with the feathers! I'm definitely going to have to give that a whirl.

    Sweet toads, too -- really loving the olive/tan color combo.

    Much appreciated! I hope someone catches a big tarpon on my toad. Since I don't ever tarpon fish it'd be really cool to see.

    Shorts strips and drift. It can imitate a shrimp, you can also imitate a baitfish.

    Looking at the postings has me jones'ing for the package in the mailbox. May be in Marathon for a few days in March and if so would die to at least see some silver to throw at. If that is possible from a yak or on foot.
