Black Ghost Marabou

The Black Ghost Marabou is a simple to tie fly that is a killer on both lake and stream. The Black Ghost has it’s roots in Maine’s Rangeley region and was designed by famed fly tyer Herb Welch back in the 1920’s. The Black Ghost is one of the most popular streamers, and this marabou version is a great addition to the lineup. The original streamer that Herb developed was tied using a white saddle hackle wing. The marabou version has become a staple in many streamer wallets for good reason. This pattern is a little easier to tie and the action of the marabou wing differs from that of the bucktail or hackle wing. Tie smaller sizes #6 or smaller, for casting and larger sizes for trolling. This is a great fly pattern to cast after ice out and during the summer it makes a perfect fly to troll with.

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.
