The Story

Unquestionably the most famous and ubiquitous saltwater fly pattern in history. The Deceiver's profile matches so many baitfish and every saltwater fly box needs both sizes and all colors or it's not complete.

Length 3½, 4½.
Sizes: 1, 2/0.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great service I use these flies for redfish and trout on the flats. So far so good.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Poorly made! I bough two of these decievers in olive one in size 1 and one 2/0. After maybe 1 hour of fishing a large portion of the white bucktail fell out and almost every single peice of the chrome tinsel was gone. I though maybe I just got unlucky and I switched out to use the second one, but no the same thing happened the fly basically fell apart in less than hour of fishing. I was basically left with two thin and guant looking clousers. I will not be buying fly patterns from orvis again.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Go to fly The white 2/0 is a never fail fly for stripers at Montauk. Works great with a floating or intermediate line. I’ll put a popper head on it for added surface action. My only complaint is the flash coils after a few fish. Other than that, it’s great.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from So Far So Good! So Far So Good! No issues on my end. Have yet to see if it lives up to the hype.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Well Made Have not had an opportunity to fish it yet, but upon initial review, it appears to be well made and durable.
