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.

Long story short

Support the Global FlyFisher through several different channels, including PayPal.

Long story longer

The Global FlyFisher has been online since the mid-90's and has been free to access for everybody since day one – and will stay free for as long as I run it.
But that doesn't mean that it's free to run.
It costs money to drive a large site like this.
