Tungsten Torpedo

The Tungsten Torpedo- has there ever been a better name for a tungsten beaded nymph made to sink quickly and get the job done?! Kevin Compton of Performance Flies created this nymph, and it has earned a spot in many fishermen’s boxes. Rightfully so, this fly is fast to tie, and catches fish like crazy. This nymph fishes well year round regardless of the season. It is particularly deadly with euro nymphing, czech nymphing, and other competitive fly fishing methods. This quick video demonstrates how Fly Tying 123 ‘s own Derek Kohler ties this fly, and the materials he uses.

  1. I use that and similar patterns vertically jigged and twitched through the ice when the perch are being “fussy”.
