Purple Ghost

A slight variation of the Purple Ghost from Bob Veverka's book. I took some minor creative liberties and chose to rib the rear floss section and shortened the veiling a smidge.

Cheers and Merry Christmas to all!

Thanks Nate. The tail is the special blue and black barred feather from the wing of the Eurasian Jay.

Great fly! Purple is such an effective color.

“Preserving, protecting, and restoring our waters are tasks for many lifetimes, and sometimes the effort can seem overwhelming. But as long as we stay connected with all of the many, many blessings that water provides, and continue to keep that love in the forefront of our minds and hearts, as long as we remind ourselves to hope, then our stories will help connect others to water and encourage them to do what they can to help care for this beautiful Blue Marble world.”
