    I tie a simplistic intruder. Plus, I tie mine on tubes. Cheap, fast, easy change outs. If you're swinging, that fly rides by the hook though I do add the tubing for the hook at times. Those are some money flies that's for sure. But I agree, it's all about confidence. I've said it once, said it a few thousand times on threads about "hot flies". Have two buddies I used to fish with alot. We all caught some nice steel in a slot on the Hoh. All had COMPLETELY different flies, different colors, but were all our "go to" flies. If you have confidence, I think you fish the fly harder and more thoroughly.

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