I have read in a book that the Beaman's Ghost is a well known brook trout streamer, but I have yet to find a pattern anywhere on the internet. Does anybody know if this pattern?

Brent,

Maybe you heard of this from Bob Linsenman's book "Michigan Trout Streams"? He actually has a photo there of Hugh Beaman and some discussion of his streamer. Bob owns the Au Sable Angler shop in Mio. He has a web site and maybe you can contact them there for more info.

He says in there that it's a variation of the Black Ghost tied 8-12. Body is black wool ribbed with gold tinsel. It has a white hackle wing with either a red or yellow throat (hackle fibers) tied sparse and lightly weighted.

Hope this helps!
