Lama DeceiverPosted on 12 November 2013 by Vincent
Big pike like big flies. Of course, that’s not always true But using big streamers often brings big pike to hand. In the next video Peter van Ruitenbeek ties a big pike streamer, the Lama Deceiver.
The Lama Deceiver was originally tied by Herman Broers. A dutch fly tier that’s known for his big pike flies. It’s a fly that has a big silhouette, but it’s relatively light to cast. Okay, it’s a big ass streamer, with natural materials, therefore not the lightest fly. But given the size it’s relatively light.
Peter uses 2 different sizes for the eyes. He does this to create a jerkbait-like action.
