One of the most popular saltwater patterns of all time, maybe one of the most popular choices for chasing down any predator as a matter of fact, the Deceiver is known far and wide for being effective. Adding a Fish-Skull Fish Mask from Flymen Fishing Company just ups the anti and adds another level of realism to this pattern that big fish won’t be able to shy away from.
Whether you’re targeting a school slashing at a bait ball or searching for cruising singles that are looking for a big baitfish meal, this pattern will let you feel the power of a saltwater game fish’s strike.
