Default How much tungsten putty?

Generally speaking, how much tungsten putty do you use for nymph and streamer rigs?

Default Re: How much tungsten putty?

I couldn't say generally. Depends on the stream depth and speed as well as the weight of the fly and how deep I want the fly to be. Experiment. If you want the fly close to the bottom, put on enough that you tick bottom and occasionally hang up. If I'm standing in the depth I want to fish, I cast upstream and let the fly drift down past me so I can see it's depth.
