Micro Intruder: “Trail Run”

Jay Nicholas Micro Intruder Trail Run

I’ll list the materials recipe for this fly, but the 20 minutes that I thought I was recording Video of this fly were a loss – no memory card in the camera! Boo-hoo. Oh well, here is a fresh image of a very pleasing tube intruder that will swing up summer and winter steelhead, guaranteed. Just add water and grabby fish and you’re in the game.

I extend a special thank-you to the many people who came up to me at the Spey Clave on Saturday.

Question: “Are you Jay?”

Answer: “Yes.”

Questioner: “I thought I recognized your voice. I’ve been watching your videos and following your blog for years.”

Me: “Gosh, thank you very much for coming up and saying hello. It means a lot to me, honestly, to meet people and hear first hand that people have had fun and learned at least a little from those videos. Let me know if I can ever help you on your fly tying/flyfishing journey……”

I’ve recorded several more fly tying videos that Chris Daughters will be posting on the Oregon fly fishing Blog shortly. Thank you all for your good wishes—they mean the world to me.
