    Default Mini-Intruders

    Enjoying tying these Intruder style creations but they do take a lot of time so here’s some mini ones, with just a single station at front.

    Underwing is arctic fox spun in a dubbing loop, which makes a great supporting hackle for the marabou hackle and ostrich feelers.

    Very nice gary - i tye my intruders single stage anyway. Very sparsely too.

    Check out Trevor Covich's youtube videos.

    Like this one




    If you really want to cut the time down, after spinning the fox in a composite loop, put all the other materials layered in a single composite loop.

    Using a board like Trevor, also makes aligining and filling the loops much quicker, as does using the super heavy OPST dubbing spinner or something similarly heavy.

    Best of luck,

    Cheers GeeBee, appreciate advice and will check out the youtube vids you recommend. Been watching a few, if you haven’t already then check out the Portland Fly Shop site, current favourite with very detailed instructions and some cracking patterns.

    Arnold, the pink one will be getting a swim in the Clyde as soon as she opens👍

    Hi Gary,

    I just learned from youtube - mainly Trevor and Jerry Frenchs stuff on the OPST channel, plus i fished for wild winter steelhead with Trevor a few times and we talked a lot how he tyes them.

    I have had grilse on the blue and black in high ish water, and ive no doubt the pink will work in coloured water.

    I think orange would work too, but so far have not fished it much.

    Cheers

    Mark
