The fly catches salmon and trout in either style but I am trying to catch up with the past 15 years and learning to convert many of my ties to the modern styles of tying.

Instead of the poly fiber wing & crystal flash feelers the Intruder uses long polar bear fibers to replace the color and sparkle. I see good things associated with these flies
Ard I'd say that you are off to a fabulous start! Your AK Assassin looks amazing! Really love your rendition of it in a shank. We'll done buddy!

Just one suggestion if I may offer input: flip the eyes on the bottom of the shank so your hook point rides up. I suppose you could always flip the hook too

Killer fly. Just killer!
