This is a pattern tied up by Jurij Shumakov. There is a sweet collection of Jurij’s tubes on the article linked below. I just wish they had opted for some larger images of the flies.

Tying an Intruder Speystyle Tube

Picked up from a search on Youtube. Here is a fly tied by Charlie Piette from Tight Lines FF Co. He’s tying up an Ed Ward’s Intruder. The Inturder style flies are really cool to tie, but the fact of the matter is that there just isn’t enough Spey fly content out there in video form yet. Take this as a hint to get out the hd cams, digital cams or even your camera phone and start shooting some Spey fly tying footage and post it to one of the video serving sites out there. Let’s see those traditional Speys, Dees, Intruders, conversions, Violators, Penetrators, Interloopers  and prowlers. 

Here is Charlie’s fly. Enjoy.
