    Nice doing some Intruders myself today, they are pretty simple to tie.
    Be using some angel hair also, keep them simple.

    All are excellent ties! I also like to use 30-35# mono looped for the trailer hook but before I start dressing the fly it take the tag ends of the mono and double them back over, tie off and superglue them. They WILL NOT pull out that way...

    My problem with heavy mono is the diameter and needing it doubled through the hook eye. It holds teh hook out causing less fouling of materials though. Melting each end of the mono to form a little bead on each end will also aid in holding it in place. Once tied in well no way that mono will slip out.
