Like a lot of game fish, the Dorado sometimes becomes cannibal in its disputed territory! The colors of this pattern can mimic a small Dorado in an escape situation, becoming prey to a larger 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.
