I’ve had good luck with this one on Ohio’s Mad River in the early summer. When dead drifted past rising fish the strikes can be awe inspiring. This fly is very popular on Pennsylvania spring creeks as well. Check out Eric’s website here.
Tony ties a rabbit strip tube fly for steelhead. He always does a good job of explaining things and is an excellent fly tier.

This one is by me, Paul J. Beel. I will be sending several of these to Michigan fly fishing guide of True North Trout, Brian “Koz” Kozminski and he will be testing it out as soon as the season starts. No name yet.
A group of fly fishermen from Sweden called LeGrille FlyFishing did this video on an intruder style pattern.
So ever since I saw Wonder Wing style flies for the first time I’ve wanted to try to tie them. I never felt comfortable until now. So I sat behind my Regal last night and was ready to go. By following the information on this page of FlyAnglersOnline and this page on MidCurrent, I was able to grasp the concept. Below I have posted my little Wonder Girl tied last night. The hardest part of this technique is holding the fibers down as you wrap them on the hook. You just have to make sure you have a firm grip and don’t let any of the fibers come out. Once you get a couple of wraps on them, you can then pull them up slowly to manipulate the length of the wings. I love the style, they make beautiful wings. -Paul
