Intruders for trout are a great tool for swinging on skagit lines. Tie these trout spey fly patterns either unweighted or weighted. https://www.cooperlandingfishingguide.com
Trout spey intruders mimic traditional intruders for steelhead and salmon, but are generally tied a little smaller.
The materials we used in this fly can be swapped out for your favorite intruder materials. We love greens, blacks, browns and whites for tying this pattern.
I happened to us a lot of Pheasant materials for this fly, but substitutes will still make this fly an great one for swinging for trout. You can also use a forward hackle at the very end to protect the marabou and add even more water pushing characteristics.
