The Intruder Fly Pattern - no that isn't correct. The Intruder Fly originally tied by Randy French, and Ed Ward, was a concept pattern. The concept was to tie a large fly pattern with a small trailing hook. Before the Intruder, large flies were tied on large hooks. These hooks damaged the Steelhead for release - they were tied on large ott (1/0, 2/0 3/0…) hooks that were cutter hooks that kept slicing into the fish's mouth.

Second part of the concept was to tie a fly with two stations - a rear and forward station. This allowed a large fly to cast easier.

Since the 1990's this fly has continued to morph. The reason for this is in the word Intruder which refers to two things:

1. The fly concept that Randy French and Ed Ward developed.

2. An Intruder is something that anadromous fish respond to - other small fish in their redds hanging around to eat their eggs.

Large flies tied in an Intruder Style can also represent food like squid and shrimp that steelhead and Salmon have foraged on in the ocean.

Intruder Flies for Steelhead, Salmon, and Sea Run Browns

What does an Intruder suggest or represent to a Steelhead?


Possible Responses:

  • Automatic Condition Feeding Response - representation of a squid, prawn or fish.
  • Curiosity Response – Large 3 to 6 inch Intruders are large animated attractors that instigate Steelhead, Salmon. And sea run Browns into striking.
  • Survival Competition Response – An Intruder may eat eggs, and the survival response is to remove they prey.
  • Territorial Competition Response – when Steelhead come into a holding area they often setup a territory. When an Intruder swings through their area and bite response is initiated.
  • Anger Response – an Intruder has disturbed the peace, a Steelhead’s space.


What to Look for in an Intruder:

1. Size (bigger is often better) This depends on water clarity and water temperature. Clear water = smaller; Cold water = larger.
2. Shape, profile and outline (what does the fly look like when it is wet and swinging through the current.
3. Color - Steelhead are color-conscious to the extreme.
4. Movement – does the fly have movement in the water, not the air.
5. Casting ability – can you cast the big Intruder. Big flies = big rods, and heavier sink tips. Or adjust your cast. You can Perry Poke Spey Cast a big Intruder if you are having trouble.
6. Durability – will they fly stand up to casting a fishing punishment.

Take a look at Moal Leeches for Intruder Type Flies. Larger size Moal Leeches are Intruders, and their snaky movement profile move Steelhead to the take.

Solitude's Signature Series Intruder - Steelhead Fly


About the Signature Series Intruder, by Scott Howell

The Signature Series Intruder was not a simple case of sitting down at the vise one evening and creating a new pattern. It started back in the early ’90s with a circle of guides at an Alaskan wilderness lodge. The first Intruder-style fly was the brainchild of Ed Ward, and was originally designed for king salmon. This shank-style fly was a solution for creating huge, pluglike silhouettes that couldn’t be achieved on conventional fly hooks.

While fishing these flies for kings, it was impossible not to notice the bycatch of huge Alaskan rainbows. It didn’t take long for us to realize that if rainbows couldn’t resist the fly, steelhead might have a similar problem. Unfortunately, we’d have to endure a grueling summer of guiding before we’d get to swim these patterns in steelhead waters.

That September I crammed into a truck with Ed Ward and Jerry French and headed for B.C. with my drift boat in tow. Despite low-water conditions, we fished the Intruder—and it worked.

The standout prototype was an olive version Ed had created. At the time, we thought it looked a lot like a sculpin. In actuality, I think it was Jerry’s animated description that fit it best: With fly in hand—pretending to swim it through the air—he said the fish must think it looks like some kind of intruder. It all took off from there.

Testing Grounds

The next winter, I fished with Ed on the Skagit, and he asked me if I was still using big flies. I proudly showed him my newest creation, only to have it dwarfed by what looked like a small bird tied to his line. From that point on, our Intruders grew bigger and bigger until one day I could barely cast them. We never found a size too big for the steelhead but we’ve since backed off on the giant sizes to end up with a pattern that still provides a large silhouette with limited materials, so it sinks and swims well, and casts easily.

Intruder development has been an ongoing process since day one. Introductions of new and different materials have defined its evolutionary stages. The first Intruders were tied with marabou, and were basically large knock-offs of George Cook’s marabou flies. From marabou the fly progressed to schlappen and then turkey feathers, which provided exceptionally long hackles.

I thought Intruders would always be tied with turkey feathers but about the time I’d collected a lifetime’s worth, Ed found and started tying with ostrich feathers, which were even longer. I’ve since narrowed my Intruders down to two different styles in an assortment of colors. The Signature Series Intruder has an ostrich hackle/saddle shellback, which creates a large silhouette, with a bulky hair collar behind the front hackles.

Marabou and rabbit-strip flies can be heavy and difficult to cast once wet. The Intruder’s design solves both problems. First, the large hackle dressed over a fairly sparse body produces a substantial silhouette with less material. This allows the hackle to swim freely, giving the flies lifelike action. Second, since the Intruder’s materials don’t hold water as readily as rabbit strips or marabou, they are easier to cast.

Another crucial Intruder component is its heavy dumbell eyes. Lead or tungsten eyes allow sparsely dressed patterns to sink fast. It is also important to note that the Intruder’s design makes it less buoyant—with less water resistance—than more heavily dressed flies. This means Intruders rise slower in the water column once they’re under tension and swinging.

Confidence is Crucial

The Intruder is now my mainstay for nearly all steelhead fishing. Even under normal summer water conditions, I find natural-colored Intruders catch more steelhead than the same old Green Butt Skunks or other traditional patterns. Whether trying to pull fish in cold water, or just knowing I’m throwing something different with the Intruder, I always have confidence in it.

When fishing the Intruder, cast slightly upstream and make a big upstream mend. This takes tension off the fly and allows it to sink down to the fish’s level. Just as the line is about to come tight, kick another small mend in it, straightening the remaining slack line. It’s important to get this second mend in before the line comes tight and the fly starts to swing. Otherwise, you’ll lift the fly out of the zone.

I’m a big believer in not overmending the line. Once the fly is fishing, let it swim. Follow the line around with your rod tip and wait for the pull!

Rob Crandalls UV2 Devils Candy Blk/Cer

Tied by Spirit River:

This is a killer leech pattern tied on a size 2 hook.
8-15 just in from Rob, Just wanted to touch base. We have been doing well on the lower Deschutes with the Crandall patterns by Spirit River. This year with the drought conditions we face, White River a tributary to the lower Deschutes has been adding a lot of glacial melt. This colors the entire lower Deschutes River for about 50 miles. This is prime time for steelhead fishing in this section. With reduced visibility (often only 20”) traditional methods with dry lines are failing. To produce results for my clients on a daily basis we have switched to sink tip lines and the Crandall’s Wedding Dress in cerise and blue to get results. The jointed body of this pattern moves the fly a lot and the flash material draws in strikes from aggressive fish. Plainly said, we are catching fish when others are getting blanked!

    Silvey's Extractor, Black/Blue

    Silvey's Extractor, Black/Blue have become a modern symbol of steelhead fanaticism. The one supposed drawback, the curvature of the material, makes the flies look unkempt and gaudy. A fly with a bad hair day. Once the flies are in the water, the material moves like crazy, it is so good, we couldn't believe it. They cast like a fly half the size. Fishing the fly extensively revealed they don't tangle or foul, they swim beautifully. A fly with a large silhouette that cast well and swims with the most motion we've seen in any large fly. Once again Brian Silvey takes an idea and follows it to it's stellar conclusion. Size: 2.75" (2 3/4 inches)

    String Leech Intruder, Black and Pink

    Tied like a Moal Leech : Moal leeches are tied entirely on a string (Fireline Braid) with a trailer hook at the back. This gives the fly greater action than a fly tied on a rigid hook. More fish are landed with the Moal fly as well. Plus the addition of Dyed Pearl Diamond Braid in-between Rabbit (this helps lighten up the fly), Rhea and grizzly hackle tips + Real Eyes Plus for barbell eyes and Ice Dub.

    The super glue underneath the Dyed Pearl Diamond Braid stiffens up the braid line to help prevent this fly from fowling itself.

    King Intruder Leech, Pink

    This pattern came from Grabflies "King Intruder Leech, Red" but I have only fished it for Winter Steelhead. In off color rivers like the Hoh river on the Olympic Peninsula. My first try with this fly I caught two Steelhead and no other flies were producing any results. I used a four inch King Intruder Leech, Pink on the Hoh, but clearer water rivers I use the three inch size.

    Fly is tied using black cross cut rabbit strip tied on braid line like a Moal Leech, then lots of Rhea spun on, followed by Flashabou, and Guinea and a bead cone. The Black Rabbit core gives this fly lots of silhouette and animates the flashabou.

    The Hybrid

    The Hybrid, A very serious Steelhead Fly (Solid colors good for Salmon too).

    (NEW Design, Fall 2015)

    I have designed similar Steelhead flies like this pattern. It is a refinement. The Hybrid also comes articulated (more movement) if you choose that option. Also this pattern comes with the new tip dyed Ostrich Plumes that really add movement, plus with the added Ostrich Spey Plumes tied in under the larger tip dyed plumes gives the fly more silhouette but without much water absorption so it is pretty easy to cast for a big fly. When the black dyed tips of the Ostrich move the fly appears more lively in the water.

    King Intruder Leech, Red

    This fly has been a Chinook Salmon Killer Fly in colored water. I tried many different patterns and combinations, but as soon as I tied this fly up, and used the first morning in off color river conditions. I had landed three 20 lb Chinook Salmon. To make sure it was not just a special day, I went the next morning I hooked and lost a huge steelhead when tailing and landed a 16 lb King Salmon.
     
    I swing this fly.
     
    Fly is tied using black cross cut rabbit strip tied on braid line like a Moal Leech, then lots of Red Rhea spun on, followed by Red Flashabou, and Red Guinea and red bead cone. The Black Rabbit core gives this fly lots of silhouette and animates the flashabou.
     
    Sizes:
    5 inch (tied using lower and upper spun Rhea if I don't have long enough Rhea). Winter Steelhead, and King Salmon 
    4 inch recommended for King Salmon, and Winter Steelhead
    3 inch for Steelhead and clearer water conditions for Salmon

    Moal Leech - Product Image
    Click for larger image
    Moal Leech

    Moal leeches are tied entirely on a string with a trailer hook at the back. This gives the fly greater action than a fly tied on a rigid hook. More fish are landed with the Moal fly as well.

    The tried and True Mother of all Leeches. The classic Strung Out MOAL (Mother of all Leeches) is the one thst started it all. Invented by Derek Fergus is is one heck of a pattern. These really are a pattern you need if you hunt Steelhead. Because we use a Octopus hook the short shank holds fish far better allowing more fish to hand. Because it is tied on a string (gel spun) the fly tends to wiggle and swim in the current. Specially swinging them.


    Size 4 - 3 1/4" long

    Also see Summer Moal Leeches, 2 1/4 inches (Click Here)

    The Moal Leech catches Steelhead in all conditions. Add it to your fly box. You will never look back.

    "I wanted to thank you for your fast service and a great product. I have
    been fly fishing for over forty years and have caught hundreds of trout and
    salmon and even a few bonefish but I had never caught a steelhead on a fly
    before last weekend. With my fifth cast of your black and purple MOAL into
    a nice Clackamas riffle I hooked and landed a small hatchery summer hen. I
    attached a picture although it doesn't show the fly too well (my hands were
    still shaking)." -

    Steelhead Squid Series Fly

    Steelhead Squid Series

    Marine Biologist at Oregon's Marine Science Center, believe that steelhead may retain the "search image" of nourishing marine organisms even after they have returned to fresh water. According to Dr. W.G. Pearcy, steelhead range far out to sea, dining mostly on squid, amphipods and euphausiids. Squid make up 90% of their high seas diet.

    Steelhead eat squid up to 6 inches in length.

    In developing this Steelhead Squid Series. I looked at the Squid and Intruder style patterns and came up with this fly series. It has large eyes (Living Eyes are glued on with Epoxy to 3 mm Monofilm strips) in the rear just like a squid. It has lots of swimming leg and body movement.

    There are three tie ups to choose from:
    1. Rubber leg "Crazy Legs" (very durable and good in faster water)
    2. Ostrich for the legs (better movement if softer water)
    3. Ostrich and Jungle Cock Nails for the eyes (more natural, organic)

    All tie ups catch steelhead, and color patterns.

    Flies are 3/34" to 4" long, with size 2 trailing hook

    Squid
    Squid: phosfluorescent colors

    (15 lb Winter Steelhead)
