    Ditto - I am also looking...

    Buf - shouldn't be a problem if it's accidental road kill, heard that's where many of the E.Cape guys get theirs from!

    So share your road kill chaps...

    The Eastern Cape Farmers Roadkill Flytying Materials Catalogue has more options than Veniards or Cabelas combined!

    Seriously I've heard of some b'stards (not flyfishers) putting out gin (not Gordon's) traps for otters and water mongooses (not mongeese?) often get trapped in them

    I found it DISGUSTING that a "certain member" was paying an impoverished local population for Water Mongoose pelts!! ... a sure way to wipe out a population of any animal

    We obviously talking about a different "certain member", this Water Mongoose was Road Kill!
