This particular Comet pattern was taken from Ken Hanley’s fine book Fly Fishing the Pacific Inshore. Mr. Hanley writes in his notes that this fly, which can be used for Pacific Salmon, can represent grass shrimp or other types of shrimp. It works well in estuaries and kelp beds. This is also a good fly for salmon in fresh water. See also the Silver Comet , Gold Comet, Purple Comet ,Blue Comet , and Green Brite Lace Comet.
