Yes! a natural emerger is size 14 to as small as size 22. To mimic this we often start with small flies size 16. On the point we will often use a tungsten head or size 8 fly to allow the flies to get down in the water. Watch where the trout are feeding, in summer you will often find Trout feeding in the top 18 inches of water, we have seen them feeding in the top 3 inches and watched as fishermen caught nothing because their flies were below the feeding zones.
Trout Buzzers Colour
There are lots of different midges affecting stillwaters, Black Midge, Large and Small Green Midges, Orange-Silver Midge, Small Brown Midge and Large Red midge, each has different hatches and changes in fly coloration to match the adult can help! Here are hatch charts for each of the variations can be seen on our Midge Hatch Details blog post. We usually start with black Trout buzzers and will try different coloured flies according to the time of year and specific midge hatches occurring.
