Default Re: Any pics of this fly?

Hi to all,

Herb Welch is the daddy of modern streamer flies. Besides the Welch Rarebit he designed the Black Ghost. He lived in Main I think and started the long shank streamer design. The Black Ghost is a great fly pattern and it still catches fish today. Carrie Stevens was much better known than Herb Welch. She originated the Gray Ghost and the Water Witch. I am not a historian and a search on these two names will give you a bunch of information about streamer flies in the early 1900's. You can buy their fly designs made by modern day tyers.

Frank
