Introduction: Deceiver Variant

About: I am an avid fly fisherman, and started a fly fishing channel where I tie flies and video myself fishing.

This is a great fly for saltwater applications, but also can be used for larger freshwater fish like bass, salmon, or pike. While they aren't the most easy to tie, they aren't difficult either, and they really do catch fish. They move so nicely in the water. This is a variant of the original "lefty's Deceiver" in which it was tied slightly different. I find this way is better for smaller flies, and the original way is great for much larger flies.

Hook: Gamakatsu SS15 hook size 1/0, but any long shank saltwater hook will work.

Tail: White saddle hackle

Thread: Danville 210 waxed in blue

Body: Pearl braid, or silver tinsel

Wings: White and blue buck tail

Gill: Red calf tail, or red crystal flash

eyes: Stick on eyes, preferably flat, but I used 3D eyes which work as well.

Epoxy: Solarez "Bone dry" UV curing resin.
