Fly Tying: Beginner Predator Flies – Part 2: BULKHead Deceiver

Published on Oct 19, 2018 by Editor in chief

This is an short video series aimed at showcasing the most basic predator fly patterns – the Bucktail Deceiver and BULKHead Deceiver – and how to adapt them to best fit your conditions and forage species. These two flies can be tied with bare minimum materials, are extremely durable, and are flat out some of the most successful predator flies ever designed. I had the pleasure of filming this series down in Brazil this past Oct. and put these flies through the ringer with great success fooling many large Peacock Bass. Weather your targeting trophy Amazon Peacocks, Northwoods Smallmouth and Musky, or East Coast Stripers – these are the flies that will get you started and follow you for a lifetime of success on the water.
