Cool beans! Does the wire come pre-looped or do you have to fasten it into a loop? Is the wire smooth enough so there are no worries about abrading your leader?

Failtospey, no problem with wire catching back on leader, it is stiff enough to stop that. And used these for the last 4 / 5 seasons with out a problem and fish to 30lb,

awesome really

I love intruders and yours are among the coolest I've seen - and I love the innovative use of beading wire as the entire shank of the fly. My only issue with intruders is losing them to the bottom. Probably takes me as long to construct one good intruder as it would take Adrian to pump out a butcher. But boy, do they ever catch fish.
