Tied by: Peggy Brenner
Originated by: Variation of Carrie Stevens’ Grey Ghost
Hook: Gaelic Supreme Mike Martinek Rangeley Streamer 6xl #1
Tag: Flat silver tinsel
Body: Orange floss
Rib: Flat silver tinsel
Belly: White bucktail
Underwing: Peacock herl
Wing: Green tinted dun hackle
Shoulder: Jungle cock body feather
Eye: Jungle cock
Notes: Peggy got her inspiration for the pattern from the classic Grey Ghost and a unique dyed cape she had received from Whiting. “The pelt had the most wonderful tint of green”, she says. The jungle cock body feather lends to a slim profile, and the unique color in the wing is a perfect match for some of the smelts in water where big salmon lurk. The fly is tied quite sparse and looks amazing when wet.
The March streamers have now been posted on the auction page and will be open until next Sunday, April 15th. To check out the auctions, visit streamers2012 on ebay.
Peggy Brenner – I’ve been tying for a decade and a half now; my specialty is flies that fish well in New England and the Florida Keys. I started with the basics, progressed to Classic Maine Streamers and now Salmon flies with a 1 year apprenticeship through the NH Council for the Arts; Traditional Arts Program.
