Copper John (tungsten)


Heavy and works well when needed to fish deep

A popular and widely used fly. Originally designed and tied by John Barr. It resembles a stonefly, although they are not found in Iceland. However, many anglers have faith in the fly and believe it works well where Arctic tadpole shrimps are found. It has the characteristic of being quite heavy, as its body is made of copper wire. Therefore, it sinks well to the fish and works well with another fly in the so-called “dropper setup”.
