Cradle Robber

Recommended Posts

Here is a view that better shows how the fly is constructed.

 

With the use of deer hair, craft fur and rubber legs, this fly will not get waterlogged and heavy after it gets wet, but it will also get down deep due to the slender profile, nuetral boyancy materials and the dumbell eyes.

A very good looking and interesting variation of the Intruder style of articulated fly. If I am understanding correctly it looks like the body is a thin dubbing. If so you may find that using a simple body braid body will sink even better. Good work indeed.

Yes, both the fly and name are a variation on the Intruder. This fly just looks like something that would be lurking around redds robbing the cradle. I have incorporated the body braid into a lot of my flies, but I wanted this one to be a bit more toned down.

This looks like a winner! I'll have to tie some for winter steelhead season.
