The Ghost Rider Booby Fly
This fly looks alright out of the water, but amazing in the water. The marabou pulses dramatically upon every strip. This pattern is a bit of an attractor pattern but can imitate a leech swimming if the fisherman slows the retrieve way down. This fly is best fished on a sinking line so that it will sink deep but avoid snags on the bottom due to the foam eyes. I like to tie it with a stinger hook as well if I plan on it being the last fly in my rig. The bottom line is that this fly has great action and can be fished many different ways.
