"Comet"

The other day while going through some tying material, trying to get things organized, I came upon a ring necked pheasant skin. It had been dyed red, and while this is not something exotic, it did look brilliant the way that the sunlight cast upon it. So I plucked a few rump feathers and placed them on top of a few claret saddle feathers and held them up in the light. They were very striking. So along with a few other items I tied up a streamer. The addition of a bright yellow throat, and the peacock herl gave the streamer a sort of bursting effect to the eye, "comet like", is how I saw it..... thus the name "Comet"

I hope you enjoy it.

    Bright colors are always an attractor for cold water and warm water fish. Those colors in this streamer should get the job done. Nicely tied. Thanks for sharing
