Pink Intruder

Here is a sweet variation of Ward’s Intruder. I’ve been tying up a number of Intruders myself, but sans Rhea and Fox. The rhea is a nice addition to the fly and really adds to the appeal. I haven’t bee tying mine with fox, but rather polar bear. I’m going to check out the fox cause it looks rad. I found this pattern on Brian Niska’s blog, check it out here – http://whistlerflyfishing.blogspot.com/2009/01/pink-intruder-tube-fly.html.
