About the Grey Ghost Salmon Atlantic Fly
The Grey Ghost was created to imitate a smelt.
It has been used successfully for Salmon and sea trout on both sides of the Atlantic.
The fly is one of the Rangeley style of feather wing streamers, meaning that the pattern not only comes from the Rangeley Lakes region of Maine but is also tied using a certain technique.
Rangelely style flies incorporate the use of pre-assembled wings tied in at the head of the fly.
