Pattern Description
The Deceiver is credited to Lefty Kreh and is an absolute must-have saltwater pattern. This fly can be tied in a variety of shapes, sizes and colors to match different baitfish and even shrimp and crabs. This is another old time pattern that has become a mainstay, and like most of the others, it is a simple pattern to tie and requires nothing fancy in the way of materials. Keep in mind you can keep this fly as simple as you like or dress it up with all the bells and whistles and it will catch fish either way.
