North Pacific Albacore Deceiver

Pacific Albacore eat fish eat all day, every day. They may eat little tiny baitfish less then two inches long, or great big fat baitfish in the 6" size range, and they may be selective or undiscriminating in their feeding preferences.

I developed this Deceiver pattern to create a fly that would cast easily, swim true, and present an overall baitfish profile and color hue that would induce Pacific Albacore to chase and inhale the bug. This Deceiver has received the gulp of approval and you can have fun tying and fishing this tradition-based fly.

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.
