    Here you go, Casey; a Gray Ghost pattern, tied as per Carrie Stevens.

    The wings on this fly are first glued together, tyed in one side at a time on the sides of the hook and "tented" together over the top. This is rough tye; for fishing only.



    Here's one that I'm itching to try out this Fall on some LL Salmon. It's called the Chief Nedebah; developed by the Chief in the Rangeley Lakes region. Unlike Carrie's patterns, where the individual wings are glued and attached on the side of the hook, these wings are attached back-to-back as a pair on the top of the hook; Eastern Streamer style:



    Carrie tried to get her wings low on the shank; she thought this was more in keeping with the bait fish that she was trying to imitate with her patterns. Eastern Streamers tyers don't think it matters and it certainly is easier and faster to tie in on the top of the hook.

    Pocono, that Chief Nedebah is a very visually stunning fly! If I was a fish, that thing would be hanging off my lip in no time. I feel like a fly like that would be murderous in the salt.

    Typically mine is a BH Prince or a grey scud. If fishing dry, I confess to using deer hair pellets because the stockers at the trout parks in Missouri suck them down.

    If going for other than trout, it's a bugger. Hands down. Typically black, but sometimes chartreuse for the clouded waters.
