The vibrant Blue, Orange and Yellow colors along with the gold Flashabou tail on this fly make it a perfect attractor fly as well as a close resemblance to a small Peacock Bass. The fly is on the large size and a little more patience false casting is required but the results are outstanding.
The Reducer was one of Rob Anderson’s first commercial fly creations. The fly has been tied commercially by Umpqua Feather Merchants for over 15 years. On Rob’s first trip to the Amazon Rob found out quickly what was needed in a fly for down there. Unweighted to hover near the surface, push some water to create vibrations and be easy to cast for lengthy days on the water. The front of the fly was an inspiration from the Hollow fly invented by famous fly tier, Bob Popovic. The last layer of Bucktail is tied in backwards and folded over to create a large profile. This fly has stood the test of time and is one of the best-selling Peacock Flies on the market.
