Default Add a tungsten bead to your fly fishing leader.

Here's a little tip I learned from Clayne Baker over here in Idaho. If you tie your own tapered leaders and your fishing a sinking gly add a tungsten bead to the 20 lb test part of your leader right above the knot and it will help sink your fly but still give you that natural presentation.

Good tip. I'd like to try that on a couple of leaders, but it sounds pretty permanent. Thanks for the tip!
