Fish Species: Arapaima, Golden Dorado
Fishing Destination: Parana
The all black pattern limits the amount of detail the fish can see. Creating a Re-Action bite. Many game fish can be selective and sometimes this fly can be the only one to fool the fish.
This fly is really similar to the Andino Deceiver. The biggest difference is it has dumbbell eyes instead of bead chain. Most of the time Golden Dorado are hunting in fast water, which makes it difficult for the fly to sink in the same spot it hit the water. The Muddler Deceiver’s dumbbell eyes help it to sink quickly in current. The conical head, in addition to good hydrodynamics, causes great vibrations in the water worked either with fast or slow retrieves.
