Black Buc Bug with green butt or Green Machine. I love to catch fish on more traditionally tied fliess, but the Buc Bugs really do the job day in and day out.

For me, in early June in Gaspe, a Picasse tied in my own style has been the killer fly.

I almost always start with a green body blackwing stonefly - June 1 or August. Early on an Old Road streamer ( made for me by my friend Pierre S) has given me lots of action as well ( slim profile a bit like a Herb Johnson)

A Tiger Ghost single hook is always a good bet on Gaspe rivers.

Gaspe13,

I have been unable to find a recipe for the Tiger Ghost, although I have found one for a Tiger Ghost Variant. If you get a chance, would you please post a recipe for the Tiger Ghost.

Thanks,

CK

I usually tie them with the ingredients below. I dont know if they are exact, but its what I use. I also tie them with silver and flourescent green bodies.

Hook - Salmon eye up or can be 3x or 4x long Streamer hook for larger sizes.
Body - Black and white rod wrapping mixed....or floss duplicate.
Butts - Small Green butt trailing a small orange butt (undertaker style)
Ribbing of fine oval Silver
Black hair over yellow hair (sparce), slightly extended past bend of hook
dark soft long hen hackle throat (Very Sparce)
Silver Pheasant Cheeks
Jungle Cock (optional)
Black Head

That's how I tie them although I do vary the bodies and the colors.

Howie
