  1. I don't know if that's the name of this fly, but if it is you have nailed it.
    Nice flowing colors.

  2. Nice. I think marabou took the traditional Black Ghost to new levels. Red and white is a good attractor type pattern here, in Maine. I like the sparseness on this one. Good attention to the throat. A few strands of flash. Tied for the fish.As I've said to you before, authenticity is a trait I admire. Thanks. Rock on, out there,my friend!

  3. Brk Trt: It's what I was thinking of when I tied it. So it's what I'll call it. I need to get some 8X long hooks and give it another go. Thanks for the comment.
    Herringbone: Thanks for the authentic comment. I'm really just playing, but the beautiful ties by Brk Trt and over at Streamers 365 have inspired me to look up some patterns and get serious. But meanwhile, I think this will fool something. When I was bank fishing the lake I caught several Browns on streamers. They'd follow right to the shore before taking.

  5. Brk Trt: Yes, gorgeous. And on a sproat hook. Re: "Fire and Ice," there must be a streamer you know about that already has that name.
