Use these stonefly nymphs during times when the holes are deeper and the water is faster and you need something to throw that will get down and get down fast in order to stay in the feeding zone for any reasonable length of time. These tungsten bead stonefly nymphs are the deepest. Double tungsten beads drag these stonefly nymphs down like a stone (no pun intended). In brown, black, yellow. Nymphs available in sizes: 8, 10, 12, 14.

"I love this product. The double tung bead provides ample weight to get your nymph set up down fast even in fast deep water."

Review 2 for Tunghead Stonefly
July 24, 2012
from Lakeland, Fl
"I recently took a trip to the Great Smoky Mountains in early July. I hired a guide because I'm from Florida and not familiar with trout fishing in mountain streams. The guide suggested that I use these heavy stone flies with a smaller nymph behind it because of the fast water due to recent rains. The extra weight really put the flies where I needed them and I was able to catch several quality trout with it being about 50/50 which fly they would go for. These are well made flies and appearantly look very real to who it matters most, the fish."
"When I need a fly that will catch fish and serve a dropper in deep and fast water, the double tung stonefly is my choice. I can use a much smaller trailer nymph using Mirage tippet. Weather conditions dictate which color I use, so I keep several on hand of each color."

Never want to be without this one!,

"I fish the DesChutes River in Central Oregon most. This finds the bottom in swift runs quickly & stays there. Literally if you're not paying attention. Used with great success on the Brooks & unnamed streams in Alaska as well as the Rogue Rogue. Favorite down-under!!"
