Crystal Tron Emerger

Tungsten Crystal Tron Emerger Fly Tying Video Instructions

The Tungsten Crystal Tron Emerger is a variation of my original Tron Emerger. This version has Pearlescent Tinsel twisted and woven into the body. A tungsten bead and Pearlescent Flashback has also been added. This makes the fly great in off color and heavy water!

The Tron Emerger is tied entirely with one material called Zlon (or Antron as a substitute). As this material is twisted to make the body and thorax, it develops perfect segmentation and a semi-translucense effect. This is the key to the pattern and it is very deadly on picky trout!!
