Tying Instructions: Materials are added in the order listed.

This fly is tied with very full marabou cheeks to create more water movement than a typical deceiver. This fly style is a staple in many saltwater boxes, and I think it will become a staple in my pike box as well in this color pattern.

Presentation Tips: Typical stop and go retrieve, suggesting a wounded or disoriented baitfish that will make an easy meal.
