Beautiful Flies! Any chance that you could/would follow-up with an SBS?

On Edit: I went looking after I posted, and found this link: http://www.diptera.co.uk/patterns/c/...iginal_ti.html

I still think that yours look better!

I'd love a Laurie SBS as well, I think the blue and pink would both be deadly for steelhead in a 10-12

Tried out the new dabblers today tied with florescent polar fritz, worked fantastic over 23 fish for the day all safely released.

Black Ghost on Mustad 3665A size 4. I believe this is a 6xl hook.
Head could be a little shorter and the body is not as neat as I'd like (could be smoother in the floss and consistent pitch in the wraps for the rib) but over all a pretty decent first streamer effort.

That is an excellent first streamer Eunan! The head could be a bit more tidy, but that is the only thing i see! You did very well!!
