SBS shank intruder

Heres my two sense on it.

Using a 2271 down eye really helps keeping the bend and point of the hook used out of the way, Im using GSP for spun fur so I helical wrap 6/0 and hit with glue to resist pullout.


Using backing since i ran out of wire, itll work


Make sure you return your stinger material and lock down


Use 6/0 to secure the dumbbell eyes

dubloop

add a small slip of black arctic fox

after securing the dub, unwind the loop to use for the coyote fur, slip in the coyote fur, make sure its clean on the but ends and close to the loop

Spin, Brush, and slick to one side

Wrap the fur made hackle

Add guinea

Repeat fur hackle process, wrap dumbbell eyes, and add guinea.

Nice bug. One thing, make the loop just big enough to switch out hooks. Once you get a hook in that one, it's gonna hang really far back.

To get a good sense, put the hook in when you tie the loop on, then unloop it

It's always cool to see how others build their flies Matt. I am actually very crude compared to many of you fellows but having these SBS to view helps me to expand my tying and thus my flies.

Thanks,

Ard

Well done, Matt. Way to showcase the shank-fly feature of the hook... such a nice hook also.

I know it's not really a true shank intruder per the original but I love the way these look. I'll be completing my tube sbs later today I'm sure everyone will be happy with what I show.

Nothing wrong with your Intruder either. These have come along ways since.

SRFS stinger loop material

Nice SBS Matt. After years of trying out a variety of loop materials, including wire, I have settled on the loop material that I now sell. It is great. Stays perfectly in line, holds up (never had it fail), does not rust, and I now produce it in a variety of nice colours.
You can check it out here: http://www.skeenariverflysupply.com/...loop-material/
Cheers,
Jaap

Hi Matt, it's a solid monofilament composite. Flat. Fairly hard.

SBS is short for step-by-step fly tying instruction. Too many acronyms.
