A great fly for fishing anything from big tailwater rivers to skinny limestone creeks, the Tungsten Tailwater Sowbug Fly lets you get deep and imitate those little freshwater crustaceans. Sowbugs are an important food source for trout and tend to live in vegetation-rich waterways. The Tungsten Tailwater Sowbug Fly is a simple pattern that’s tied with a picked-out dubbing body, wire ribbing to enhance durability and give a realistic look, a red thread collar, with a heavy tungsten bead. These materials come together to make a fly that sinks quickly and imitates things like sowbugs, scuds, and even some small cranefly larvae.
The Tungsten Tailwater Sowbug Fly is an excellent choice for nymphing through weedy runs and pools and should be fished just like any other nymphs, whether on a tight line, under an indicator, or as a part of a multi-nymph setup. Carry it in a few different colors and in sizes 14-18, you can fish the Tungsten Tailwater Sowbug Fly any day of the year and it’s a great choice when searching out a new tailwater environment.
