Yes, one of the keys to the Intruder concept is the appearance of bulk - without a whole bunch of material. That is the beauty of the original with its use of a few turns of split pheasant tail for the front and back hackles - the stiff fibres maintained a larger profile yet were actually quite sparse.
Tight lines - tyler.
