Tying Instructions: Today I thought I'd post two flies. I named the fly Comet because it kinda reminded me of something entering the atmosphere. This one has a married "wing" for the throat. It is a fairly big fly on a Heritage 7/0 LS hook. The wing is a lowly duck feather dyed mustard. The tip is four tiny tippet afterfeathers dyed yellow. Another material I don't throw away and you will see on quite a few of my flies. The tail is another feather I didn't toss out. It was a damaged Golden Pheasant sword feather (side of the tail) and I simply stripped the barbs below the damage.

Happy Trails!
Ronn
