#160 Killer Ghost - Glenn Peckel


Tied by: Glenn Peckel
Originated by: Ora Smith
Source: Trolling Flies for Trout and Salmon; Dick Stewart & Bob Leeman 1982 pg.75

Hook: Mustad 3665A
Tag: Flat silver tinsel
Body: Rear 1/4, orange floss; next 1/4 slim orange floss with flat silver tinsel ribbing; front 1/2 orange floss
Wing: Red imitation bucktail over which are 4 wide dark blue dun hackles
Throat: Yellow imitation bucktail to the bend of the hook
Shoulder: Dark teal flank (40% length of body)
Cheeks: Jungle cock sword or spear feathers tied long
Head: Black

Notes: The jungle Cock feathers used on this streamer are quickly becoming a favorite material to tie with as I feel they lend a certain elegance to a streamer. The Jungle Cock spears are described as "the underdeveloped, almost black feathers with a narrow eye, from the base of a jungle cock neck". There are only a few of these feathers available on each cape, so use them sparingly. Glenn has put together an amazing set of 12 Ora Smith streamers as his contribution to the Streamers 365 project. We will be auctioning them all together as a set near the end of the project.

The GFF money box

… I have a small favor to ask.

Long story short

Support the Global FlyFisher through several different channels, including PayPal.

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.
