Fly Tying Video: Clearwater Intruder

The Clearwater Intruder was designed to keep a small profile, which is preferable to summer run steelhead, while still maintaining the advantages of a stinger hook fly. The Clearwater Intruder is generally 2-3 inches in length and a great option for summer run fish or low, clear water. This pattern can be tied in several color variations and is highly effective weighted or un-weighted.
