My latest flies have been deciever variants,Which have worked pretty well too.
What I really appreciate with these flies are how easy they are to cast,restricts are imo that to tie a proper deciever you need bucktail of very,very good quality which sometime can be hard to find,also if you don't wanna blend or dye tails by yourself there's a limited colors available.
Anyway,with quality materials you can tie some awesome easy casting flies.
One important thing to remember is to not overdress it.
There are hundreds of videos how to tie different variants of these and I have snapped inspirations and ideas from them but was too lazy to make a video of my version but many people have asked about how I have tied mine so I decided to make an SBS of it.
As a hook I'm using a Partridge universal predator X size 6/0
