Pink Intruder

Here is a sweet variation of Ward’s Intruder. I’ve been tying up a number of Intruders myself, but sans Rhea and Fox. The rhea is a nice addition to the fly and really adds to the appeal. I haven’t bee tying mine with fox, but rather polar bear. I’m going to check out the fox cause it looks rad. I found this pattern on Brian Niska’s blog, check it out here –


Tube: HMH 1.5″ aluminum
Hook: Partridge Nordic single size #4
Tail: shrimp pink arctic fox
Body: pearl Lagurtons flat braid
Hackle: hot pink rhea wrapped over spun white polar bear
Collar: shrimp pink saddle hackle wrapped with hot pink schlappen
Wing: white ostrich herl with an underwing of pearl flashabou
Head: finish off with a nice set of machined eyes of your preference
