Wish we had those beautiful Longears here in NJ Jim. You catch them in Illinois or do you have to go out of State?

Welcome aboard Jim. I have semi modern electronics and I was stunned when I could see all the finder would do I just didn't know about. Hoping we can learn our machines find out exactly what they can do get out on the water and use all the function we have to there fullest potential.

Have some cob floats if you want a couple. I haven't fished with the gall floats yet, you could test one out. Send address and I'll get them in the mail.

Hey Jim!

Thanks for the response. Sorry to hear you wont be able to tie up for the swap. But its good to have a job after all. Hope there isnt so much work that we don't hear from you.

My bet is there will be a New Year Swap, so standby. And, if you have the stuff for some more of those little Cosgrove Poppers of yours, I'd like to know about that.

Peace, brother.

Jim,

weve got a small fly swap going here at BBG and Id like you to join.

Its all detailed in a thread on the main forum.

Check it out!
