Un-'truders

As an extension to the previously shown U tubes, I have added some un-weighted intruder-style variations, varying the 2 'posts' between dubbing balls and hackles, and altering the final collar colours, and some with just a hint of angel hair flash.












These are again on tubes, and would be suited to connect the hook either by junction tubing, or bead & loop.

Hope you like

Un-‘truder:

Recipe:


Tube: plastic 2.5mm od, ~50mm long
Thread: 14/0 GG sheer
Rear post: dyed natural fur dubbing ball (alternative = wrapped & swept cock hackle)
Rear ‘wing’: sunburst dyed arctic marble fox tied in the round
Body: pearl straggle fritz
Rib: medium French oval gold tinsel twist
Front post: as per rear post
Front ‘wing’: fiery orange dyed raccoon dog tail fur, tied in the round
Accents: Amherst pheasant centre tail: tied in 4 bunches equally around the tube (quartered), each bunch consisting of 2 fibres each of natural, dyed hot orange, & dyed blue; you may wish to add a strand or two of pearl angel hair with each of the quarters of Amherst
Front collar: kingfisher blue dyed saddle hackle, swept
Head: fluo red thread or floss
Varnish: clear

Steps:

Tube in the tube vice, thread started, and first bunch of dyed natural fur dubbing spun onto the thread



Start wrapping the dubbing ball as the rear post



Rear post completed



Select a small bunch of unburst yellow dyed marble fox, remove the underfur, and tie ‘in the round’



Wrap the tying thread over the fox along the body, trim XS fox, and tie in a length of oval gold tinsel



Tie in a length of pearl straggle fritz



Wrap the straggle fritz as the body



Wrap the tinsel in open even turns over the straggle fritz, ensuring to pick out the mylar fibres as you go – I could have used more wraps of tinsel; spin some more dyed natural dubbing onto the thread for the front post



Completion of the front dubbing ball post




Tbc…..

Part II:

Wrap some fiery orange dyed raccoon dog tail fur in the round immediately in front of the front post for the front ‘wing’



Tie in the bunches of Amherst pheasant fibres in four loose bunches quartered around the tube, each bunch consisting of 2 fibres each of undyed, hot orange, and blue; you could add a couple of strands of angel hair with each bunch for flash if you wish



Tie in a kingfisher blue saddle hackle



Wrap then sweep the hackle as the final collar



Complete the head with fluo red thread or floss



Varnish the head with clear



Completed tube fly off the vice, and held on a cocktail stick



The fly as it may look as ‘swept’ in the water

?2 inch range? - Fingers or ties?

Thumb width about 1" - isn't everybody's??

To be serious - the fly length head wraps to tips of Amherst = 3.5"

What I have found to be most interesting is the similarity between the dyed raccoon dog tail fibres & polar bear - just wonderful to work with & will be using this much more

Many thanks for all the very positive comments, guys!

Have a good one


Mike

Those are great. Thanks for the SBS! That really helps me grasp how they are tied. That sunburst yellow fox is gorgeous.
