White Ghost - Old flies - August 17, 2009
"I should reiterate that these flies are not the least bit difficult. I would encourage you to try some Carrie Stevens streamers, they're fun to tie and with a little patience and material selection up front, they'll turn out fine" - Eric
Thank You Eric, Well Done!
You are a exceptional dresser of the old fly patterns, and all your articles for Just Old Flies and stuff" have been terrific. Yet "The White Ghost" article struck out a new direction, away from the previous articles of "Just Old Flies and stuff.
The "Step by Step Instructions" for "The Grey Ghost" shows that many of these old patterns are not that difficult to dress. Encouraging the average tier to attempt dressing some hooks with the pattern and being successful in their efforts.
Again "Thank You" for sharing you deep wealth of knowledge on these long neglected fly patterns. There is no excuse that they are not commonly found in use on the waters and streams. ~Parnelli :D
