Many fly fishers ask me what is"your favorite fly pattern"   ,  and they will often get a very quizzical stare from me for an instant and then an answer...Intruder patterns on a Stinger set-up.! I really don't know if people understand what an Intruder pattern is,but the simple answer is a large and vibrant variation of a "WOLLY BUGGER"!! Here on the West Coast of Canada the waterways can be very large and intrusive. The Salmon, Trout  and Steelhead , particularly those living near the coastal regions are very familiar with major water variations;High/low, fast/slow, canyons/wide expanses ,Glacial/Gin Clear! This factor and the understanding that as fry and juvinile fish a great part of their diet during those early times is that of decaying fish. Can you imagine a major rise in water levels will bring many body parts into the system that have been torn off the bones of dead fish and now flushed into the system.Eat while you can...and this memory triggers responses from these mature fish once they enter the system to either spawn and die or reproduce ,then return to the Salt water for a future return trip ,or perhaps more.
