Hook: Mustad 3366, size 2/0
Thread: White, 3/0
Tail support: Red bucktail
Tail flash: Pearl flashabou
Tail: One pair red grizzly hackle over one pair white hackle
Cheeks: Red marabou
Underwing: Red bucktail
Wing flash: Pearl flashabou
Wing: White bucktail
Overwing: Peacock swords
Throat: Red over white marabou
Eyes: Red 3D prismatic
Head: 5 minute epoxy followed by Hard as Nails

This fly is tied with very full marabou cheeks to create more water movement than a typical deceiver. This fly style is a staple in many saltwater boxes, and I think it will become a staple in my pike box as well in this color pattern.

That one looks like a winner! Red and white combinations have been the most productive for me by far throughout my fishing life... perhaps because I fish red and white at least 75% of the time :hehe:

This is a great looking multi-purpose pattern!
Pikers will definitely go for this one.
