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.
