Tesla Coil Nymph

I was looking to create a nymph for fishing the tributary streams running into Lake Ontario that had both a UV presence and a little extra weight. The Coil hits the mark by using a body of copper wire and a heavy tungsten bead combined with some UV materials.
The fly has been great so far, picking out quite a few trout, chub and panfish from the creeks.
