Muddler Deceiver - The Go-To


Size: 3/0

Fish Species: Golden Dorado, Payara, Traira, Stripped Bass, Bass

Our Destination: Parana River

Chartreuse is maybe the most common attractor color on a game fish streamer. There is a saying that all the colors work as long as they are chartreuse. This color combination should be in your fly box on any game fish fishing trip.



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.
