This fly is a comet variation that uses a material from craft stores called Brite Lace. The material is a little bulky but has an iridescent quality that almost glows. The tail is tied traditional comet style with a few wraps of thread under it, holding it up and out, and very long. I tie this in silver and gold as well. The bead chain eyes can be left out, but add weight to the fly to get it down. See also the Silver Comet , Gold Comet, Purple Comet , Blue Comet , and Green Brite Lace Comet.
