Just got home and troutguys well tied extended body BWO's were in my mailbox- thanks for the extras!

Well guys we have 2 no shows so far, i have sent both a pm and we have had 6 weeks to tie these up. I am going to give them till end of tomorrow to have flies and they are not here by then everyone will get back 2 patterns picked at random. Is that fair?

I just received a pm from add147 and he had some issues come up and doesnt have his set ready to send out so that would mean an additional week till we get his set of flies in so we will have to move on without his set. I will give JokerOne till the end of the day to send us over his set and if they are not here or have an overnight delivery then we will have to move on without him as well.

Norm, what is your body. I'm torn between a very good, perfectly wrapped, stripped peacock quill. Two wires wrapped. White and black moose mane wrapped. What's the story on such a nice looking body?

I have these all divided up and ready to send out tomorrow. As stated earlier we had 2 people that were no shows so we will each be receiving 2 additional patterns back so we will each have 12. You guys are going to love these, some of the nicest patterns that I have ever seen in any swap; BWO's and March Browns ranging from size 12 down to 20's.

Vicrider my guess at Norm's file is a striped Rhode Island Red hackle
