Black Ghost Marabou – FlySpoke.com

The Black Ghost is one of the most popular traditional streamers still tied today. Check out the Day 1 post on Streamers 365 for a few feather-wing examples. William from FlySpoke.com ties up this marabou version of the classic and offers some valuable tips in the video for tying streamers. A couple nice things about this patterns are the holographic tinsel and the sandwiched peacock herl in the marabou wing. This is a real fishy looking streamer.

The Ghostly Black

I love tying traditional Black Ghost patterns, and I love seeing variations of it as well. I have a few different versions I tie, mostly based on the original, but this tube fly is a nice break from the traditional. Just add a bit of jungle cock and you have a very sexy fly pattern. The Eumer tube system is fast becoming my favorite tube to tie on with the versatility f colors and shapes they produce. My only beef is the cost, but quality is important and so Q-tips shanks are definitely out.

This is another Richard Strolis video and there will be more down the road. He does a great job with the variety and production of his videos. Keep up the great work Rich.
