Mike Schmidt’s Double Deceiver – Brian Wise

Mike Schmidt is the man behind Angler’s Choice Flies and he has some truly mammoth streamers. Brian Wise of Fly Fishing the Ozarks must have hit a herd of whitetails and needed a way to get rid of all that hair. The Double Deceiver is an articulated fly, 6-8 inches long, and uses a LOT of bucktail. The result is a nice full pattern designed to temp the meanest predators in the streams. Musky, bass, pike and big trout, you’ve been warned.

Thanks Brian, for the great work in the editing dept. Love the front end shots of the completed flies and the scrubbing through the tying.

  1. A Man after my own heart! Articulated flys on big iron. If it wasn’t Kelly in the video it could be a twin and the names for the flys part of the fun and so Kelly. Your last visit with us up in Spokane was a hoot. Stay safe and have fun!
