Tied by: Don Soar
Originated by: Herbert "Herbie" Welch

Hook: Gaelic Supreme Mike Martinek Rangeley Streamer hook 6xl #1

Tail: Golden pheasant crest

Rib: Silver flat tinsel

Notes: The story of the Black Ghost (#1) stretches back into the early part of the 20th century. Sometime around 1919 - 1927, Herbert Welch created the iconic black white and yellow ghost. Since it's development and subsequent success, the pattern has morphed into a plethora of variations. Don's polar bear wing is one of the more elegant versions, using the coveted translucent Arctic bear hair and finished with richly colored jungle cock.

Long story longer

The Global FlyFisher has been online since the mid-90's and has been free to access for everybody since day one – and will stay free for as long as I run it.
But that doesn't mean that it's free to run.
It costs money to drive a large site like this.
