WELL SOMEONE HAD TO PUT IT UP Laughing Laughing

Leftly Krey's Deceiver is without doubt, the most successful SW fly pattern ever invented, and not only has it probably been responsible for the downfall of every species of fish swimming the Ocean, at some time and another, but can be tied in every combination of colours imaginable (and almost certainly has) Only the Clouser Minnow comes anywhere near to equalling the Deceivers reputation as the Number one SW pattern.

The illustration below, is the plain old white deceiver, but the tail, the body, the flash the collar, and the wing can be tied in any colour the tier chooses, and the topping of peacock herl, the eyes and red throat, can be omitted or included.



Hooks: Your Choice of brand and size. from 8 up to 8/0
Tying Thread: I use white, and blend with non waterproof pen, depending upon the colour of the wing. Normally however, tying thread is matched to the wing colour.
Tail: A total of 4 to 6 White Cock Saddles, (or any colour you wish) tied in equal numbers on each side of hook back to back, with a few strands of Krystal Flash.
Body: None is really necessary but the illustration is tied with Pearl Body Braid
Collar: White Bucktail (or any colour you wish) tied all around the hook shank, making sure that the tips of the bucktail extend a little way beyond the bend of the hook, to avoid fouling problems. A little flash material of your choice may be added at this point if desirable.
Wing: White (or any colour you wish) extending slightly beyond the tips of the bucktail collar.
Topping: Strands of Peacock Herl (Optional)
Throat: A few strands of Red Krystal Flash, DNA Frosty Fibres, EP, or the like (Optional)
Eyes: Flat Stick On, or Painted (Optional)
Head: White or Colour to match the wing colour. Alternatively use white and then dab the top of the head with a touch of non-waterproof marker pen to match the colour of the wing, and then with wetted fingers, blend it down the side of the hook to achieve a two tone effect.
Finish: Loon Hard Head, or the head cement of your choice.
