Comets: Salmon/Steelhead love Comets streaking by.

Somewhere, with regards to tying Steelhead and Salmon patterns, I have followed the herd in tying ever larger and ornate flies. Long, leggy affairs that are lashed to a plastic tube or spendy Waddington shank. But, I came across a couple pieces about the Comet fly pattern and immediately wondered how did I stop tying these in the last few years. 

The Comet was always a simple tie and quite productive on the waters, primarily in the Winter. It is worth a review/revival to at least add to the other 2″-5″ long flies with trailing stinger hooks. 

Here is a video and information re the Comet at Oregon Fly Fishing Blog

Here at Fishing with Jay you see two of the primary colors for Comets.

This a simple to tie, very effective pattern for dredging away in the Fall months for Salmon and then into Winter for Steelhead. I have never fished it on the swing with a two hander so can’t speak to that, but no reason it wouldn’t work. Blue and Silver is a fine addition too.
