    The Fly That Never Ceases - 12/8/2014

    Can't say how many Deceivers I have, or have used and lost, but it is a miracle pattern! I wouldn't be caught on the water without a full compliment of sizes and colors of this workhorse. Only problem I have is a wife who doesn't see the need for a full assortment of them. But then, she doesn't fly fish either....

    When I received my flys i was surprised on how good the quality was. I have paid more for fly's with far less quality. They look and the color were outstanding in the water.

    Bass Cocaine - 8/28/2014

    I purchased several colors and sizes of Lefty's Deceiver from Orvis for my quest to land a Northern Pike on the fly. I thought I would practice over my lunch hour at a local park just to see how the flies operate. On my second cast, I set the hook on a small largemouth bass and had several more follow-ups. While I haven't hit a pike lake yet, these flies work well on Mr. Largemouth! Will be purchasing again once this set is worn out. Good job, Orvis!

    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.

    By: from Plymouth, MA

    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.
