The Lefty’s Deceiver is named for the originator of this fly the world famous fly fisherman Lefty Kreh. Lefty makes regular mention of how many species (both salt and fresh) this fly has fooled and I recall it is over 50 at this point. He set out to create a streamer that would cast well and not foul, would have an attractive profile and that was easy vary in color and shape.

Here in the northeast an all white version is among the best producers as is chartreuse over white for off color water. A slim, sparse olive or tan over white version is killer for the bonito and albies that we pray invade our shores in late summer.
