Swap rules 12 of the same for the main set, 3 wildcards
any kind of bugger is fine, articulated, bead head, cone head, on a jig hook,something that most closely resembles a bugger for the main lot including the traditional style chenille and hackle bugger is fine. For the 3 wild cards I ask that you make them a little fancy as far as buggers go.
Right now I am planning a march 31st due date if that is fine with everyone, please remember to put your screen name and real name on your box if possible. No need to share what kind of bugger your submitting but you can if you want.

I will not be adding anyone else to this swap unless over 4 of those listed do not wish too/are unable to participate. If people drop out I will reduce the numbers for the main set accordingly for the first week this is open.
It looks like there are some new swappers in here please make sure you read the swap rules if you have any questions feel free to ask.

Love me some buggers, we have a local lake version here that I am going to tie for you.

Still in it, maybe best swap ever, hoping my buggers close to the standards set by these members.

Any pointers on what's considered a fancy bugger? I'm still so new to tying lots of things seem pretty fancy to me. I want to make sure I'm meeting standards.

only so many ways to make a bugger fancy, just something besides the basis chenille and hackle on a hook, add a bead head make an articulated one etc. I did indeed have you down twice.

I'm still in
A Pitt fan, a Marshall fan, and a WVU fan are climbing a mountain and arguing about who loves their team most. The Marshall fan insists that he is most loyal and then yells,"This is for Marshall!" and jumps off the mountain. Not to be out done,The WVU fan next professes his love for his team. He screams,"This is for the Mountaineers!" and pushes the Pitt fan off the mountain.
