Rockfish Deceiver

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.

… I have a small favor to ask.

Long story short

Support the Global FlyFisher through Patreon or Ko-fi. Both offer PayPal payments.

Long story longer

The Global FlyFisher has been online since the mid-90's and has been free to access for everybody since day one – and will stay free for as long as I run it.
But that doesn't mean that it's free to run.
It costs money to drive a large site like this.
