Gray Ghost Streamer

From the Rangeley region of Maine, Carrie Stevens is perhaps one of the most famous fly tiers in the annals of fly fishing. The Grey Ghost was one of her most famous patterns and is easily one of the top five most famous patterns ever tied. Not only do they work, but you should have them in your box out of pure respect for the tradition of the sport. In gray ghost.Sizes: 6, 8, 10, 12.

"No matter how often I go trout fishing, I can never catch fish as big as those that I take on any of the different sizes of Grey Ghost streamer I use. Whether its a size #12 or a size # 4 Grey Ghost I never get skunked when I've got one of these little monsters on the end of my Orvis One Weight, with a matching CFO Reel, whenever I use that Grey Ghost streamer fish just jump out of the water side ways to get their jaws on that little baby. I have to tell you, that the biggest fish I ever caught using a Grey Ghost streamer was on the Connetquet River around August, of 1994. I was fishing between blind 9 and 10 I was using a #4 Grey Ghost and just where blind 10 flows into blind 9 there's a deep hole on the far side of the bank, I must have cast to this fish about 7 or 8 times, but no strike. The fish swirled the fly a couple of times but this was a smart old fish. So I started to look through my wading jacket an old timer had once told me there would be days that no matter what you did, that fish weren't going to strike. Now what he told me was something that a lot of fishermen might say is "cheating just a might," but that old timer told me that the next time I ate sardines don't throw out the oil that the fish were packed in and save it in an old bottle, and just dampen a smidgen of that oil tween your index and thumb and lightly smear it on your fly. Well I did this and the very next cast under the lowest part of that tree limb "WHAM" a 121/2 lb. Rainbow slams that #4 Grey Ghost, good thing I had put on a number 3, 6 pound test tippet other wise I never would have landed that fish. That fish was so long I had to fight that fish with my 1 weight for almost an hour and 15 minutes, I couldn't get that fish into my net head first, I had to tire her out so much and then scoop her up tail first, she jumped out of the net twice when I tried to land her head first, but once I got that tail in the net she was all mine. That's one day I'll never forget and I've got the pictures to prove too. Will provide picture next time I'm on line, good fishing everyone."

Great Streamer!!!,
May 17, 2008
By: Dyberry
from Northeast PA
"This is a great streamer. I caught 4 trout with this streamer and they all attacked it!! I prefer this more than salmon eggs, corn, and spoons! My partner still caught his limit but I didn't, but the point is that I caught bigger trout, including a 17 in. rainbow. This is a great streamer pattern!"
