Great Lakes Deceiver – Articulated 8 inch – Rainbow Trout


7 in stock


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 8 inch size is ideal for river browns when trying to make that 25″ come attack a fly or ideal for fishing the shore line of the Great Lakes and looking for that 20lb brown trout. 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.
