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.
