    Very nice. I've never seen an articulated intruder before (well, except for the dirtbag I caught trying to peek into my Daughter's bedroom window one night 20-years ago. He was somewhat articulated when the cops arrived. I think he fell down . . .).

    What is your best advice for casting them?
    I struggle with a heavy tip and good sized fly on an 8 wt switch

    Yikes, those look nice. Even I could probably catch a fish with one of them.
