Tungsten Sleeves

Question

Guest

I'm just thinking out loud here. I found some small tungsten sleeves that go on hooks at the Orvis Fly Fishing site. They are supposed to sink faster than lead, which would mean they are heavier. They crimp on a small hook and are cylindrical. I may have to get some of these to try, they are expensive though. Any body else have a similar idea?

They are for flyfishing, making weighted nymphs and such.

Try some weighted flyfishing nymphs. They look more natural than any icejig and they work great for perch and panfish!
