These amazing tungsten teardrop nymphs were sent to me by Barrie Duffy. Β They really demonstrate the superb thorax shape that can be created using Tungsten Teardrops. Β Some of the details in these flies are really superb,Β Β I love the eyes on the nymph front left and also the belly covering over the teardrop slot.

For how to fish and tie these amazing nymphs, Barrie explains more in his article Teardrop Nymphs for Snaggy Waters

A keen angler since 1998 when I started sea fishing while living in Australia
On returning to the UK, l realised I had good trout water on my doorstep and took up fly fishing. I pursued this with the same passion and was happy to have the opportunity to develop a business in my chosen pursuit.
Favourite species include Trout and Grayling but I also like to pursue other species with the fly and have caught sea-trout, pike, perch, roach, chub, orf, minnows, mackerel, coalfish , pollock and mullet on the fly so far.
