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.

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.
