Re: Where to use these flies
These deceivers are truly universal. If a fish eats fish, they will eat a deceiver.
I recently tied some up for a buddy who was going to Canada that were articulated and about 9" long for pike. The pike absolutely inhaled them but so did the walleye. The popular hangtime musky fly is based on the deceiver premise as well. I've caught largemouth and smallmouth with them as well.
