These things are easy to tie - in essence these are Intruders tied on a 35mm waddington with a 50lb fireline loop to put the bait hook back a bit. Butt is polar bear underfur on a dubbing loop, followed by 3 turns of rhea then 2 turns of amherst centre tail, 2 black plastic beads on 50lb nylon for "eyes", body of dubbing with counted rib of contrasting cheneille, 2 strands of krystal flash with 2 grizzle saddle hackles followed by 2 turns of amherst side tail - small dumbels to finish! Bon appetite!

Size matters !

Speydoc,
thanks for that. Could I ask what size the completed fly is, as it`s hard to gauge from photo. Do you tie them in various sizes?
Many thanks,

Cascade.

The final flies are around 5" - 6"(12 to 16cm) these are the largest I can comfortable cast on most of my lighter speyrods and are more than large enough to get a response out of steelhead in cold, high or dirty water conditions. One certainly could tie them larger or smaller, however I have other patterns that I prefer if I am going up or down in fly size.

Thanks S.D.

Speydoc,
Thank you. (We had reckoned approx 6", and needed to check with you). We`re going to have a go at tying them. Really excited at the prospects for these. I imagine the movement is awesome, Will let you know how we fare out.

Cascade.

Gordon, Intruders work well on the Spey, Deveron and Beauly.

Well done, SD....whereas I am on dial-up, and most of today's web sites are geared for high speed, I struggle with 1 meg of data every 7 minutes here. Sometimes with pictures, it's slower than that. Viva 14400 connections..... Of course the upside is living very close to the river.
My request: do any of the forum sponsors carry the rhea feathers.
And if so, which one. Thanks. KD

Ken_D,

I purchased them from River Run Anglers before. They are great people to deal with and will go out of their way to help you.

www.speyshop.com

The other sponsors are great too. Give them a call.

Charlie.
