We have been using Turkey flats as feather props in our Intruders for a while now, but Jason was dying his own for steelhead flies because we could only get trout colors. We went to Hareline and asked them if they could dye them in Steelhead colors, and they agreed. We now have Intruder Feather Props in all the right colors.

The benefits of using the turkey vs fox or other hair:

-Much easier to cast as the turkey is lighter and sparser and wont soak up near the amount of water.

-Added translucency - the feather stays up in current, and will prop rhea or ostrich but you can see through it, so if you have a bright body, it wont be hidden by all the hair.

-You can make very nice, sparse, summer style intruders that will cast on a rage head with a poly leader very easily. This year especially, with the low water, you wont have to deal with hanging up on the bottom every cast. You can stay lighter, but still get a bigger profile.
