Default Wingless Wonder / Inspired by the Spider Flies;

I have been seeing flies for trout, salmon and steelhead called the Spider for quite a while now and have never ventured into tying or fishing them. This is as close as I have came and will make up a few in different colors and see what they do. The Spider style is now popular with fish and fishermen from coast to coast.

Wingless Wonder in Purple;

I stuck the second picture here to demonstrate the gob of dubbing behind the hackles and collar. The idea is for the wide thorax to hold the feathers out a bit while the fly is traveling through the water. This is not a pattern I will fish in really swift currents. It will be a fly for long slow moving pools and runs.

Tying:

This one is tied to a Partridge size 4 hook. How you make one is really a matter of choice and is dependent on what materials you have on hand to create a fly with long flowing hackles. If you choose marabou try to keep it sparse.

Beautiful fly Ard, but no where near a 'Intruder.' Or as they're also called :' A dead Chicken with a hook up its butt.'

Not my style of fishing (fly) but: Yahoo! Video Detail for Intruder Tube Fly Underwater

These things are typically the size of ... what? Ah, a dead Chicken.

Maybe it was inspired by spiders? Yeah, that's the ticket, Spiders, I went back and corrected that. I have never seen an Intruder fly in person and should think before I speak

Hi Jonathan,

Amherst Pheasant crest, glad you guys liked the way I spent time during a storm. Sooner or later I'll let you know how they work.

Not to worry, Spiders it is. If/when you see an Intruder you'll know it. Most are huge in size and have the the largest lead 'dumbell eyes' you can buy strapped on. Not sure if it was a "Chicken and Egg" sort of thing, but the same folks developed these as the Skagit lines. Takes a lot of 'grain mass' to chuck one of these buggers.

I don't know Fred it looks like a spider and an intruder mingled in the Wheatly and spawned this fella. Its has the profile attributes of the intruder to an extent like an intruder on a diet. Any way you want to slice it, its fishy!!! I'de give it a swing in a nice slow dam pool after the rain and flow settled or swim it though a boulder garden.

Indeed WB, indeed. I can see that fly, summer or winter, working off the end of a full sunk spey line to get her deep, down and dirty. Flat to the current that Puppy would have a heck of a profile and be darned easier to cast than a full on heavily weighted Intruder done on a 45-55 mm Waddington Shank.
