Featured Fly - Fish Mask Deceiver

This guy is tied just like Mike Schmidt's double deceiver, however it is only the back half of the fly. There are many different colors, styles, and sizes of the deceiver, but one this will always be the same, I love this fly. I fish deceivers for everything, trout, bass, stripers, and pike. My recent trip to VT, is the motivation behind this fly, on top of Fish Skulls new sick product "fish masks". We have had great luck with smallmouth using this fly, and going to VT and watching the pike destroy anything orange was just crazy, so here we go.

Hook: Partridge Predator - 2 to 6/0
Tail: Schlappen Feathers - Color to match Deer Hair
