The Deceiver is probably one of the worlds most famous saltwater flies, developed by the master fly caster, fly tier and writer, Lefty Kreh who died just a week ago. Lefty was a great inspiration for me and thousands of other fly fishermen. The Lefty’s Deceiver works equally well for freshwater predators of any species.
This version is one of Morten’s favourite flies for fall fishing for searun brown in the Scandinavian streams. It is tied on an Ahrex NS110 which is a relatively heavy hook. The added weight of the disc gives the fly a better balance – and the sonic disc sends out vibration and sound that makes … Continue reading "AHREX – Sunburst Sonic Muddler – tied by Morten Valeur"

Amber and rusty coloured baitfish imitation, that has got a jigging nosediving action thanks to the fish skull. This one is tied on an Ahrex saltwater hook, but the fly is equally efficient in freshwater. I use it for brown trout, sea trout (sea run brown), sea bass – and perch and pike.
Lean, mean and with a color that make big trout go bananas :0) Slimline articulated streamer fly, that makes a good alternative to the more compact sculpin style articulated streamers.
