Dubuque Fly Fishers


Black Ghost Marabou

Tyer: Michael Jacobs

Weight: Lead wire (optional)

Tail: Yellow hackle fibes

Rib: Silver Mylar Tinsel

Notes: The Black Ghost is a classic streamer originally tied with matched white saddle hacle wings. It can also be tied as sampled with a marabout wing for more movement in the water. I have found this fly to be excellent for catching crappies or bass. For bass, use a larger hook..
