 INTRUDER FLIES

I tie mostly "Intruder" type flies, firstly they look gorgeous in and out of the water keeping their baitfish profile making them a target for the loch's predators but also because I enjoy tying them.

They appear bulky out of the water due to how the material is spun on to the tube during the tying however this is an illusion, the amount of material actually used is much less than traditional patterns of a similar size.  I tie them in a range of weights and styles allowing them to be cast with a 6 or 7 weight.

Over the winter is when I have most time to tie flies, please let me know if you have any requests. 

The large trout patterns are £10 each, the salmon and sea trout patterns are £5 each.

Autumn Flies 

I like orange and red colours at this time of year, I tied these for my 6wt.

You can even play with them in my fly swim tank before you buy to see how life-like they become, click the link below to see one swimming.
