The Great Lakes Deceiver is a pattern that we have developed that is extremely effective for many species and one of our favorites here in Michigan for trophy trout, smallmouth bass and salmon. The 6″ Jointed Great Lakes Deceiver is so much lighter and easier to cast than the 8″ model. It still has that huge profile in the water and is one most productive big fish patterns in the Great Lakes region. The bucktail is built up giving the fly a much larger profile in the water and the long tails give a great action. With these color combos these are one of our go to flies when looking for trophy browns on the Au Sable River, King Salmon on the Betsie River and fly fishing the shoreline of Lake Huron & Lake Michigan for trophy trout & salmon.
