I don' need no stinkin' Intruder!!

Okay, intruders are awesome, but they are a hassle to tie, and they pretty much look like squid. Here's a pattern I've been fishing on and off for the last couple of months after seeing Jack Cooks' prawn at the "Silver Reeach tying roundtable". Basically it's a purple and black version of a pattern I've fished for stripers and white sea bass in Monterey Bay Kelp for years. Nothing at all original. This is a sparse version, but even a fully dressed one takes about 5 minutes to tie. It's taken salmon, but I haven't had the chance to really work it on steelhead. Let the flame wars begin :chuckle:

Is that a Sheik or a Trojan over the front of the fly? :devil:

Yes, it does indeed have a sort of phalic style to it...:hehe:
But seriously phil I think your on to something here, I would maybe add a bit more at the rear of the fly for steelhead though to bulk it up a bit.

Trojan. I buy the ones that are "ribbed for her pleasure", then when I use them I turn them inside out. Oh yeah!

Hey Brian. I tie them bulkier, with Yak and they look a bit like Jack's prawn. This is the sparse version. I've also done a body veilling with sparse Rams wool. Lost all of those. Need to tie more up.

Lamb's wool body veiling on a fly tied with Trojans. Sound more like this creation belongs in a Jenna Jamison flick.:confused:

Named at last!
 
Thanks to all the comments, the fly now has a name. The "Jimmy Squid" :devil: Couldn't have named it without you Kush!

Cool looking fly, Thanks for the Sample.
I know a few Chinook Fans that will love this, in Chartreuse , Pink and Fuchsia.

I think even Fred would love them on a double.

I couple for tilde influence runs Southeast Alaska that This would be real plus for Steelhead, Rainbows, Dollies, and Salmon.


How does it look in blue???????????????????????????????????
