Notes: This is one of Bert Quimby's ghost series flies based off of Carrie Stevens' Grey Ghost. The streamer was created for fishing in Maine's lakes for landlocked salmon and brook trout. The green wing is a nice match to the smelt, and is said best fished during the spring while the smelt are on their migratory run. Other streamers in Mr. Quimby's ghost series include the Galloping Ghost, Silver Ghost a at least 2 versions of a Lady Ghost.

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.
