Senyo's Independence Intruder

As the July 4th holiday approached, I sent Greg Senyo (fly tier, guide, fellow cop, and fly shop rat) a text message to see if he had anything good up his sleeve in red, white, and blue with a hook attached.  Greg answered back that he did and a couple of days later these photos of the Independence Intruder hit my inbox.  Genius.

Shank:  Flymen 55mm Articulated
Butt:  Hareline Rainbow Tinsel Chenille
Under Wing:  Blue Polar Chenille
Over Wing:  White Ostrich Barred with Red Copic Marker.  Red and Natural Lady Amherst and Pearl Lateral Flash
Collar:  White Silver Pheasant
Body:  Hareline Rainbow Tinsel Chenille

Over Wing 2:  White Ostrich barred with Red Copic Marker. Light blue and dark blue Lady Amherst and Pearl Lateral Flash

I hope everyone in the T.F.M. readership has a safe and enjoyable July 4th holiday with family and friends.
