Jay’s Santiam Ghost

Santiam Ghost

This is a fly I have been fishing about four years now.  I wanted to combine colors that ranged from subtle to spicy.  I’ve always liked blacks and purples in my steelhead flies.  Gold UV Polar Chenille  makes a sparkly under-veil, and  grey marabou  provides a strong silhouette but is less obtrusive  than a traditional black or purple wing.  This fly really presents an impression that is both gentle and decisive.  Throw on a black bugger marabou tail and a purple collar hackle.  Just  right.
