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!
