How to tie a Tungstone

With all the flies John Barr has developed it is easy to overlook some. The Tungstone is one that doesn’t get a lot of attention. It is a super realistic imitation of a stonefly nymph. A classic build with all the right stuff. The Tungstone is a buggy little nymph pattern. The thin skin gives it that exoskeleton look, the bead adds weight, and the hen legs seal the deal. If you have a dry big enough to hold this fly up by all means fish it as a dropper. Otherwise, this bug is best fished under an indicator or on a tightline while bumping off the bottom.
