Really nice ties, you have the sparse hackles mastered. That's always been a tough part for me through the years until more recently. Tying Intruders, of all things, is where it all sunk in and made sense.
My guess is that you'll get plenty of tugs on that R&D fly. Let us know how you do with it. That's a great looking fly!
