    I really like this pattern and the Clouser minnow. I have been lucky with this in the past and I bought these for my brother. I feel like it presents well and holds up well in salt water.

    Good Fly - 3/1/2014

    Fly is of good quality, however there is no option to have the flies shipped faster. That is kind of a fail in that regard.

    My expiernece with this product was very nice. My first time I used it I caught 5 striped bass in just one day. I highley recomend this product to saltwater fly fisherman, fishing in small areas such as rivers and marshes.

    Good Quality Flies - 2/19/2013

    I ordered a half dozen of these in different colors for bass fishing in Oklahoma. These are very good quality and will catch lots of fish before finally being eaten away by those angry black bass.

    Very Good Quality - 6/24/2011

    I've stuck some nice striped bass with this fly. I've found the Orvis deceiver to be a higher quality than what I was purchasing locally. They last longer and fish better.

    Perhaps the best baitfish imitator ever! - 3/7/2011

    I have fished the Deceiver in many situations in both freshwater and the salt. This fly has caught more species of fish than any other fly I have used. I caught several smallmouth bass in one morning on Cape Cod and used the same fly to catch schoolie stripers and blues that night! This is a wonderful pattern and a must have in any situation when baitfish are a main forage! The color of the Deceiver can have an influence on success and vary by species of forage, conditions and even the region. I often ask the locals for advice when in doubt.
