About the Roach Comet Freshwater Fly
The Roach Comet is a target for the big bad boys! When used in conjunction with a large single hook, the Comet Pike Tubes offer unparalleled hooking potential and perfect presentation, without the extra weight and casting difficulty normally associated with large pike flies.
It can be fished using a variety of different retrieves, from being inched along the bottom of a deep trout reservoir to be stripped back roly poly style across the surface. The neutral buoyancy of the fly means it fishes at the depth of the tip of the fly line giving the angler perfect control.
The success of the Comet Tubes is already proven, with fish to over 30lb having been caught from a variety of different water types. They continue to fool the wariest big pike.
Featured in the August 2013 issue of Trout Fisherman. The customised dressings use only the lightest materials and are designed to maximise movement. They are neutrally buoyant and hang enticingly in the water whilst the dressings continue to shimmer - the strikes from pike can be brutal!
This freshwater fly is designed to be fished on Dams & Reservoirs, Rivers & Streams, Still Water fish
