Galloping Ghost - Streamers of Bert Quimby


Galloping Ghost

Galloping Ghost

Tyer: Chris Del Plato
Head: Black
Tag: A few turns of medium embossed silver tinsel
Tail: Section of red dyed duck quill
Body: Orange floss
Rib: Medium embossed silver tinsel
Throat: Red-orange hackle fibers
Wing: Two Bali duck shoulder feathers, light edge on top, extending beyond the tail
Cheek: Jungle Cock
Note: The few established streamer patterns (Bali Streamer, Jess Wood, Galloping Ghost) that use Bali feathers as a wing, seem to have perhaps used them stripped on one side to give the wing a light top and dark bottom half and a low profile (though Bergman hints in 'Trout' that the Bali Streamer may have been a flatwing design). The variation shown here uses the whole feather, tied in typical upright streamer wing
