For those who love small streams, wild trout, and life...in their simplest form

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"
