Black Rockfish are opportunistic predators and sometimes feed voraciously on a variety of baitfish - making them vulnerable to a cast-and-strip presentation with a wide range of baitfish fly styles. I wanted to create a fly in the Lefty's Deceiver style that Rockfish would eat with gusto. Experience with these fish and other flies informed me that these colors should be effective, and indeed Rockfish do eat this Deceiver. I like the big eyes, but you can tie the fly with painted-on eyes if you wish, and that is more in keeping with the original Deceiver fly style.
