Modular intruders - SBS of individual module

Modular Intruders SBS of module

Using a 12mm long x 2mm od section of polythene tubing, which has been heat flared at the head end, secure this over your tapered needle in your vice



After scoring or scraping the otherwise smooth surface of the plastic tube (to improve bonding of the tying thread and materials to the tube and prevent slippage during fishing), start with black silk tying thread a few mm back from the head end of the tube, and spin on some black-dyed seals fur dubbing onto the thread



Wrap the SF as a dubbing ball (post)



Select and tie in by its tip a black-dyed schlappen feather at the front of the SF post



Wrap the schlappen as a collar type hackle and trim the XS



Select a mixture of strands of flash – black, pearl and orange



Tie in a small bunch of the mixed flash – 4 strands black, 2 pearl & 1 orange, noting that you secure them in the middle of the strands, and when you fold them back and add more thread wraps, you will double the number of strands in the finished tie


Repeat the addition of bunches of mixed flash quartered around the tube



The flash all tied in

Tie in a 4 pairs of individual ACT fibres quartered around the tube, and then tie in a matched pair of JC eye feathers



Complete the head wraps and varnish to taste

Wicked cool sbs. Thanks for taking the time. I have been working on similar things to mate up with marabous. I like this, simple, clean and fishy.

Did you place a bead over front of near finished tube? If so, could you add the SBS for that particular process for that step. Excellent ideas and presentations btw.

Very nice.....thanks for the tutorial! Going to try to make some this weekend, plus a special box idea I have for the modular components.

No bead used, just varnished the head wraps

I would have confidence fishing that system. I fish double (two tubes) flies a lot when the water if off. I never thought to use beads,
