Red Ghost Streamer

I’m sitting at my desk, just back from a good morning of fishing tiny #22 gnats and caddis, so it only seems logical to present something I could actually see in the water. I have a poster from The Complete Sportsman showing some 100+ Rangeley styled streamers, many of them tied by Mike Martinek and wanted to share this one today. Mike Martinek is one of the best known tyers of the style today and has helped to elevate this style into the mainstream. If you want to read up on Mike, see Bob Petti’s article – here.

The streamer below was tied up by another famous name in streamer circles, Chris Del Plato.
