Black Ghost Streamer Recipe
Originator Herb Welch
Hook: Partridge Heritage Streamer Hook #2 9X
Tail: Yellow Ewing hen fibers short and sparse.
Body: Black floss
Rib: Medium flat silver tinsel
Throat: Yellow Ewing hen fibers tied sparse
Wings: Four Ewing Scott Biron Signature Series white saddle hackles.
Cheeks: Jungle cock eyes
Tyers notes: This fly is tied with the wings on top of the hook shank. The tyer should be mindful of the transition area where the wings get mounted. If your body area is not smooth then it will kick your wings up at an undesirable angle. This fly can be tied in many sizes. I like the Partridge Heritage hooks because of the steel they are made with resulting in a very strong hook.
