Deceiver Fly Pattern

Hello everyone! I have posted another fly tying tutorial to my youtube channel! I really appreciate all the likes, comments, and subscriptions to my channel! The history to this famous fly is below!

Originally designed for striped bass by Lefty Kreh, the Deceiver pattern eventually made its was down to Florida to become a staple pattern that almost every saltwater fly angle has in their fly box. The pattern mimics a swimming baitfish. The fly suspends in the water and has a lot of movement in the tail. The Deceiver has been thrown a multitude of fish species, and is also a very effective freshwater pattern. The fly is tied on a size two hook with a saddle hackle and krystal flash tail, diamond braid body, ducktail collar, and red krystal flash gills.
