Shrimp Swap? Updated with Codified Rules. Swap closed.

kind of self-explanatory, right? We seem to have some impressive thread-wrappers that lurk around this board. let's try to keep your "first booger" posts at a minimum.

What should we pick as the due date on this one, guys?

I'll fish the shit out of saltwater flies (for sockeye)

I tied a few shrimps last night, they even look like they'd catch fish.

I'm sorry, I don't get it. How is taming a bird respected for its wild nature cool? Watching them do their thing in the wild, awesome. Pics of said event, even better. What exactly does making them do this on demand add to the picture? Seems a lot like having a salmon in a tank. If these are rescue birds then I get it.

Disclosure: My Pops had a Peregrine but eventually realized they deserve more respect than to be "kept".

Great point, allow me to clarify my response:
The bird in the picture is cool. I've always found raptors to be pretty awesome. There was one (red tailed hawk) in Chicago that would always be on the same spot on the LSD bike path, and when it was there, I'd stop and just watch. I saw it pluck a pigeon from a tree one day and was completely amazed at its precision. We also had one that frequented our area in Rogers Park.
I'm not sure of the temporary domestication aspect of falconry. I hear what you are saying, yard. I've been to a couple raptor centers, and we've sponsored a few birds at one in NC. I do enjoy seeing them in their natural habitat more.

Think of it as catch and release fishing.

Rather than impaling a thing you 'love' and 'respect' then dragging it around a while while interrupting and potentially ending its return to its spawning grounds, its taking a thing you 'love' and 'respect' out of the wild for a time to watch it do what it does up close. Its like that, I think.

But youre probably right, its not really for the general public so Ill spare yall. No hard feelings.

My fry shrimps are done. Heero, I'll just hand them off to you at Masemore next week, unless you're a pussy and don't show up.
