I`ve been tying some intruders latley, and I must say I like them a lot. Most of my flies (scandinavian) are tempeldogs, in one way or the other. Discowering the intruder has given me the urge to start up tying again.
Not only a cool tie, they WILL catch fish to. I`m looking forward to testing them in my home pool:smokin:

These are interesting. Can you point me to a pattern or step by step for these? I am always interesting in adding to the arsenal for the more picky fish.
What is a templedog?

Tempeldog flies are simply flies tied whith tempeldog wings. Tempeldog beeing simillar to fox, only softer. (And a bit more nice to look at)
check out theese links for "how to" Intruder......
When tying intruders I use FITS tube medium and small, and for singelhook variation: http://www.fiskenett.com/viewtopic.php?t=2748 (The writing is in norwegian, but hopfully the pictures speak for them self?!)

A Tempeldog is a spesific type of dog, although the tying material "tempeldog" comes from a variation of dogs.

Very nice flies! I use Intruders heavily during the winter months for steelhead. I will have to try some of your colors for my fishing. Has the season opened in your area yet?

My home rivers do not open until 15. june, so I`ve got some time to kill.
I`m done tying my salmonflies, so I`m tackling up for a trip to the Cyclades during mid summer. I do not know if there is any use of bringing any gear, but I have to give it a try.:) (You never know what happen)
