Dear Kush and Bob K,
I will definitely put the lead eyes on the Intruder (Ed's way) for Quebec, where weight in the fly is legal. I'd love to run the fly through some of my favorite pools in the Fall: salmon would smack it. Unfortunately, any weight--lead eyes, aluminum/brass tubes, etc.--is illegal on the Fall rivers I fish. A blind Intruder will have to do!
As the Ice Age has returned--it's a blizzard outside here in the Pine Tree State and we canceled the Nor'eastern Spey Clave in the Granite State due to a Nor'easter--actually getting a fly wet seems a long way off! Thanks, guys.
