Bernard “Lefty” Kreh, who started fly fishing in 1947 and after moving to Miami began in the mid-1960s, fishing saltwater species fly with teams. Then a common problem in models of flies used was the ease with which the fly wing is hooked on the hook when the hook launched, especially in windy days, thus ruining the chances of a good Fly work in the water. It was why Lefty Kreh came up with a fly model in particular, which solved mainly the aforementioned problem of “fouling” and also achieved a fly that had a swimming and silhouette that emulated perfectly swimming a small fish, usual prey of large predators saltwater. This fly was nicknamed Lefty Deceiver and since its establishment has continued to deceive fish from around the world in a wide range of environments. Considered the epitome of fly for larger fish, every fisherman in the world has cast hand it fly whenever you wanted to tempt a predatory species never caught with equipment fly, it was built to fish the most diverse species of saltwater from the large tarpon Caribbean to the soles of the Atlantic coast in the Argentine Sea; freshwater species as distant as Patagonia trout, pike and bass in North America, the Amazon peacock bass, barramundi in Australia and North incredible Dorado Argentino, all have surrendered to this effective deception called Lefty Deceiver.
