So, I live about an hour away from the nearest fly shop in northern New Hampshire. It is for this reason only that I committed to learning to tie 3 of the most tried and true flies for my neighborhood. Number one on the list…the black ghost streamer. And to my joy and amazement, I nabbed two hefty, acrobatic rainbows and a small brown trout on my pedestrian, mis-proportioned, bastard “fly”. Okay, that’s pretty fun!
