    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 . . .).

    Oh yeah
    I forgot about the skull shank.
    I love your work. They would fish very well here in the PNW!!

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

    I'm liking the mamba too
    around here some people fish mini intruders in low water or summer like instances
    I think a mini-momba would be the schizzz........
