INTRUDER Pattern ( attention Dana and Tyler)

Well tried my hand at this one the other night, and tied it on a tube. They are certainly a labour intensive fly. Having one in hand now, I can certainly see why they illicit such arm straigntening strikes.

This baby runs a full 5 1/2 inches

Showed this to a few non steelhead fishing friends, and the first thing out of their mouths was " wow that looks like a big shrimp "

My daughters cat also went nuts when he saw it , chased me around the house trying to get a taste, guess he thought it looked like food too.

I can imagine if a cat with a brain the size of a walnut likes it, then a steelhead with a brain the size of a pea should be all over it.

Dana and Tyler....once I get a chance to tie a few more I will mail them off

Best regards.....Paul

Wow, that is a really nice looking fly! Can't wait to tie up some for the Rogue. Maybe after escrow closes and I get settled in. :eyecrazy:

The toughest part was stripping the pheasant tail to wrap as hackle. Ed Ward apparently uses a razor to split and strip the tail. I found an easier way was to soak the pheasant tail in water for several hours ahead of tying. Grip one side of the fibers and hold the tip of the stem firmly. Pull down on the fiber side slowly and steadily. You end up with a pithy ( spl??) membrane and all the fibers attached to the membrane, makes for an easier job winding it as hackle.

If you need the pattern it is in the winter issue 2002 of Fish&Fly Magazine on page 73

Have fun, I think this one will be worth the effort of 30- 45 minutes on the vise.

Ah, Jim, jim, Jim .. what you don't understand is

we Rogue(trog-o)lites use a very good grade of Di-No-Mite to "havest" steelhead. The fuze (will work in water?) is the hardest part. Locally, we call it a "Dupot Spinner."

Dupont Spinner's

Up in Canada we call them C.I.L. kures - better known as blasting caps!

In Ed Ward's hands the Intruder is almost as deadly! :eyecrazy:

Interesting fly with a new, to me at least, way of using pheasant tail. Fred, from extensive experiments as a teen, once lit it's waterproof.

We'll make sure that Ed Ward gets a few of your ties when they arrive, Norseman!

Thanks Dana

I will get to the flies just as soon as I can. We have two fisheries here in Nelson right now that are just fantastic. The Columbia river just gave up a 17lber on a bugger and many more coming in at the 6-8 lb range, so I am having a difficult time concentrating any amount of time at the vise.

Gotta go, the fish are calling.
