“Kevin Compton of Performance Flies came up with the Tungsten Torpedo a few years back. Since then it’s become a staple of competitive fly fishermen and with good reason: it works.  What makes the fly work so well is that it looks so much like natural food, yet sinks like a stone. ”

Matt Grobert demonstrates how to tie the fly, starting with a size 12 hook fitting with a 3.2 mm tungsten bead.
