Here's as good as it's gonna get!

The cheeks are guinea that I tried to improvise with, since the shop had neither jungle cock or the imitation. They had the paper things, but I passed on them.

Ant, That will definitely work for you! By going with a 2-3x wing, you did the same thing that Laurie did with his tie. I like the Guinea Hen cheeks and the lighter tail and throat.

Jimmie, That looks good! Nice job on the ciger-shaped body. A lot of tyers will only tie this pattern with a flat cylinder body, but I like the moderate taper shape that you got with your tie. The wing looks well-paired and the mylar JC eyes work for me. In the water, the fish will only get a glance at it before they strike or pass. Originally, JC nails were supposed to imitate "eyes"on these streamer patterns; all of which, in turn, were designed to imitate baitfish.

Any other Black Ghosts out there................??

OK, so I had no black thread left, no white feathers and no jungle cock... so this is my improvised version...

twfitw, I like the substitutions. The black wing goes well on this pattern and the Guinea Fowl pairs nicely with the ribbing. I'll bet it will fish well for you.

Hey great flies everyone. I'm sorry that I dropped off here, life got in the way of my vise time over the past couple weeks.

Is the Ghost the last one, Allan? I really appreciate the tutorials, I'll come back to these when I need a refresher on these classics. Thanks for running this show and to everyone that shared their work!
