This micro intruder pattern is tied up by the Caddis Angling Fly Shop’s Jay Nicholas. Jay goes into a little bit about the differences between intruders and micro intruders and how the intruder genre has evolved over the last decade or so. Jay ties on a slick looking Regal Revolution Fly Tying Vise for this video. I picked one up for myself a couple weeks back and have been loving it as a second vise. You can change up the colors on the fly to target other species, but the pink and blue make it a good steelhead fly for both winter and summer.
