Classic Bucktail swap

Recommended Posts

I'm going to do a bucktail black ghost, I'll have to substitute a yellow synthetic for the yellow hackle because I don't have the hackle.

After an unusually long delay due to an overworked postal service, two really nice sets of flies from fishingbobnelson and WWKimba arrived today.

yellow marabou is a good substitute

I don't have that either, basically everything I tie is black,  green, or brown possibly with white.

White & Green Fishing Machine-  silver tinsel body, green over white bucktail wing -some put  a few black hairs or peacock herl topping, good local streamer

Witches Tit- red yarn fiber tail(combed out),  black chenille body with silver rib, red yarn throat (short, combed out) black bucktail wing, another good local streamer

you could use yellow yarn combed out to substitute for the hackle and keep your black ghost.
