How to Tie Flies with an Arctic Fox Shoulder

At the Sandy River Spey Clave Trevor Covich demonstrated how to tie a "K-14" intruder- a big intruder-style fly he fishes for king salmon and big steelhead in the lower sections of rivers. He uses an Arctic Fox shoulder for this fly in order to prop up the ostrich feathers that add motion to the fly. Propping up the ostrich with Arctic fox allows them to flow more naturally in the current, which in turn adds to the fly's appeal. This is a good quick demonstration on how to use Arctic fox in a dubbing loop.
