Hello fellow intruder fly tiers,
I just wanted to thank everyone who came out to the store last Wednesday for the annual Pacific Angler Intruder Seminar. It was a blast to tie a few flies and share some of my hard earned knowledge with all you fellow steelhead nuts.
As promised, you can find the recipe for the first intruder that I tied below with a couple of pictures. It is the Black & Blue fly. Remember, these flies are completely freestyle so feel free to adapt, change, or substitute materials where needed or desired.
