What/Where is the Fish Exchange?
Well, the Fish Exchange is a room in Logan's shop on Bass'ken Lake. (You get can either get there by clicking the "Exchange Fish" sign on the wall, or clicking the "Exchange" button on the chart up there.) In there he keeps a vast trove of hats for those who would like a wearable symbol of their fishing achievements, as well as larger fish for those who have way too much of the small fry.
How do I get a hat?
You go to the Fish Exchange with the right amount of fish (or junk) in your inventory.
What's the right amount of fish? How many do I need?
See the chart up there? You need to have that number of that kind of fish (or junk) in your inventory in order to get the item on the right. (For example, you need 100 Red Guppies in your inventory to get a Red Guppy Cap from Logan.)
Where do I sell my fish?
One of two places:  The Fishing Store. That's where you buy the bait and stuff. (It's not the Fishing Exchange!) Just click on the fish at the bottom of the screen.  The marketplace on the Isle de Gambino. For more information, check the Fishing Ubersticky at the top of the Fishing Forum.
So what happens if I catch 100 fish but I sell them all? Do I get a hat then?
Nope. You need them all in your inventory at the same time before you walk into the Fish Exchange.
What happens if I don't catch all the fish in my inventory?
Logan doesn't care, as long as you've got the right amount.
Do I get to keep my fish after I get a hat?
Sorry, but this is an exchange. You exchange your fish (or junk) for the item.
What do I do once I've got my nifty item?
You can either wear it, or sell it.
I don't like my item! Can I have my fish back?
Not from Logan. He's rather possessive of the fish he gets for some odd reason.
Can I preview my hat before getting it?
Unfortunately not. Fortunately, we've got models for you, so you can see what the hats look like before you exchange for a hat you don't like.
Enough about hats. What's this about Direct Trading?
Well, for those of you out there that can't reel in a large fish to save your lives, Logan's decided to be a little bit more generous. If you bring in 10 of a smaller class of fish, he'll trade you for one of a larger variety.
Do I get to pick which variety I trade for?
Nope. Look at the second chart, and what you see is what you get.
Can I trade 1 larger fish for 10 smaller ones?
Logan won't do that, but another Gaian might. Try the Fish Market section of the Gaia Exchange forum.
Does this mean that if I have a whole bunch of large fish, I can get a rare fish?
No, Logan isn't going to hand out punfish, fishinos, or gemback lions. Sorry.
What about that thing in the last post? What's that?
That's a Sapphire Lion Mask. I made it (with some help from El Huesudo II) using Adobe Photoshop, so don't go looking for Sapphireback Lions or trying to get a wearable one. ^_~
