Hello All,

I'm an inexpert tier who ties the majority of mine and my fathers flies for sea trout.

He fishes the Teign and would like to try the 'teign ghost' as it is recommended by his club. I can't find any images or instructions online, can anyone share either please?

Many thanks in advance,

Tom

Many thanks T7!

That's not what I was expecting... it looks a bit more gaudy than our usual austere predominabtly black sea trout flies.

Do you fish it yourself? I assume if I'm tying it as an intruder I would use a tinsel body?

Regards

Tom

Just found it on the web so it’s not my fly!

Is it recommended as a sea trout fly? Looks more like a salmon fly to me!

That was my exact reaction to the photo!

Yes it has apparently accounted for a couple of fish recently.
