Ghost Stonefly (var.): Video Step-By-Step

A lucky Ghost Stonefly

     Happy belated New Year! I want to start 2017 off with a video that might be helpful to some. I've received a few questions about tying various Atlantic salmon stonefly patterns. There's no mystery to it, as you will see in the video above. I have my own way of doing things that differ slightly from Todd Cochrane's original dressing for the Ghost Stonefly. My way isn't any better or any worse, just the way I like to do it. As always, feel free to ask any questions you might have.


  1. Ben, great fly.
    I take it you have fished it before.

  2. Cool fly Ben. I think I'm going to do a variation on your variation using a small single hook and black wool for trout during the little black stonefly hatch on the Mianus River. Great job on the video buddy. John
