Fly Focus Friday: Deer in the Headlights

This fly is what its name suggests, bucktail from a deer and a bunch of flash mixed in and an even flashier tail. More specifically it is a hollow bucktail deceiver with layers of holographic Flashabou featuring a holographic Pacchiarini's Dragon tail. This style of fly featuring the dragon tail have become increasingly popular in the northern pike and musky world for good reason; they work really well. On top of musky and pike this fly can work for smallmouth, largemouth and striped bass as well as any predatory fish that can fit an 8" long baitfish in its mouth. This fly features a snap attachment so that other color tails can be interchanged with different heads.
