    Tail: Black Biot
    Rear: Black Larval Lace
    Thorax: Mixture of Black/Olive/Brown SLF.

    What a beautiful set of flies! My hat is off to you all. I can not wait to get them. Better yet to fish them. i have a collection of flies from swaps that I think are exceptionally tied and several of these will go into that collection. Thanks Mike for hosting this swap.
