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.

Stinger-style Hybrid Intruder Flies

 

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

Fish Taco Fly

(NEW Colors)

Jeff Hickman designed the Fish Taco Spey fly specifically for Steelhead and Salmon. When Jeff Hickman gets hungry he thinks of one of his favorite things to eat - fish tacos.

The Fish Taco was designed to be un-weighted and easy to cast with lots of movement.

Like Fish Tacos - a favorite dish for hungry fly fishermen, and every cook has their own recipe. Grabflies has its recipe and custom ties these Fish Tacos by hand in Washougal, Washington.

Grabflies likes to tie Fish Tacos that are spicy and hot, and full and juicy. These Fish Tacos are delicious offerings for Steelhead and Salmon.

Since these Tacos are custom tied, Grabflies offers them in many different flavors and tie ups. You can get them in almost every color, and if you want to fish them deeper you can add Hot Cones.

Jeff Hickman likes to fish Purple Tacos in the morning, bright colors during the day, and black in the evening/dark.

Size: 2.5 - 3 inches

Size 2 trailing hook, hung with 30 lb. Fire Wire loop.

These custom tied Fish Taco's are tied in un-weighted thread head, and medium weighted cones. The cone head Fish Taco's are now tied like the Fish Taco Supreme (click here) .

King Intruder Leech, Blue

This pattern came from Grabflies "King Intruder Leech, Red". I have caught a lot of Steelhead on this pattern. Also see Custom Blue Flash Moal Leech, and Coho Salmon.

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

String Leech Intruder, Black and Pink - Product Image
Click for larger image
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 - Product Image

    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.

    Sizes:

    The Hybrid

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

    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. 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
     
    Size 2, 1, 1/0 trailing Intruder Hook

    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)." -

I have tried so many different fly boxes, but it was always the bulk that gets in the way of Spey casting, or closing the lid down and munching the flash of marabou that gave birth to this simple fly storage solution." - Jeff Layton

    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)
