Hickey's Tungsten Bead Auto Emerger

Tungsten is heavy and tungsten bead heads are the best way short of loading your leader with split shot to get fishing flies down to where the fish are feeding. This is an excellent pattern for searching the lower part of the column and combined with a lighter nymph above or in tandem with a lighter nymph and a dry you can cover the entire water column with ease. Emerger fishing flies in BWO, PMD. In sizes: 16, 18, 20.

"Whether guiding or fishing on my own, the Auto Emerger is my go to mayfly nymph. From technical tailwaters to freestone Cutthroat streams, this fly produces. The tungsten version gets down to the fish quickly. This fly caught more big fish for me this season, than any other fly, including this 25" Brown."

"Fishing this fly deep on the North Platte in Wyoming is crazy productive. Match the may-fly you see, the PMD or BWO, both versions are killer. These fish hold near the bottom and rarely lift to the surface. The tungsten gets you to the "eat" zone. Lift and swing this fly at the end of your drift and you will move and battle some true beasts."
