Orange Heron Intruder – Kevin Hospodar

From Kevin, “A variation of the Orange Heron spey fly and the Intruder. Tied on a 45mm waddington shank, this is an unweighted fly to be swung for Steelhead.
This isn’t an Intruder in the true sense of the pattern, but rather a mash-up of the classic Orange Heron fly and the large profile stylings of Intruders.”

Body – Orange Yarn with gold tinsel Tag/rib

Ben Paull from OPST – Intruder info

Gig Harbor Fly Shop recently had Ben Paull from OPST in the their shop and did a couple of videos with Ben about Intruders. I wanted to post both for you here because in the interview Ben goes over some important and cool materials for use in your Intruders. In the second video down below, Ben ties an Intruder and shows how it’s done. I’ve really been getting into Intruders lately myself and this is good stuff! Check it out!
