Tungsten Undertaker

This is a great little nymph that I started fishing about a year ago. It works well as a dropper behind a larger offering. I typically fish it in size 18. The tungsten teardrop adds a good dose of weight. When fished behind a weighted front fly in a two fly nymph rig the need for additional split shot or weight putty is eliminated. This patter is also well suited to use in a Spanish or French nymphing rig. Black is my favorite color for this nymph, however any number of color combinations or schemes would work well.
