Black Epoxy Buzzer
perfect for catching Rainbow Trout and Brown Trout.
Black Epoxy Buzzer
is designed to imitate buzzers or chironomids as they emerge through the water to hatch into midges. With epoxy bodies the Black Epoxy Buzzer are deadly and very resilient flies, not damaged much by trouts teeth. Midges hatch 365 days a year to flies like Black Epoxy Buzzer are important to match the hatch!
Fly Fishing Methods, Tips & Techniques
The natural buzzers / chironomids move very slowly when emerging, moving slowly up and down in the water column until conditions are right to hatch and it is important that we use the Black Epoxy Buzzer to imitate that movement. A team of flies often consists of 3 buzzers including one or more Black Epoxy Buzzer for trout on a droppered leader, with the heaviest (or largest) buzzer on the point. Never strip a team of buzzers including Black Epoxy Buzzer, allow the team of flies to drift naturally, suspend them with a buoyant fly like a stimulator or wulff or alternatively use a Thingamabobber. Always allow the team of flies including Black Epoxy Buzzer to drop below the feeding zone. Lift the rod tip slowly taking about 30 to 60 seconds to reach 60 degrees then lower the rod tip rapidly, take up the slack line and allow to drop again. The lift and drop slowly imitates the movement of the natural buzzer / chironomid we are trying to imitate with our Black Epoxy Buzzer.
When using buzzers the best fishing method is to keep it slow! What are the best Black Epoxy Buzzer fishing techniques? firstly the biggest mistake made by fly fishermen is because they are used to stripping lures they try the same techniques with Black Epoxy Buzzer. Buzzer fly fishing is a slow technique, use Black Epoxy Buzzer on a drift with a floating flyline and allow the line to drift with the current or wind or use a Bobber or other strike indicator to suspend your Black Epoxy Buzzer. Alternatively use a buoyant foam fly or stimulator flies to suspend a team of buzzers including Black Epoxy Buzzer when buzzer fishing for trout
- Do NOT strip trout buzzers
- Static or slow drift team including Black Epoxy Buzzer
- Vary depth of the team, trout will feed at different levels at different times of the day
- look for porpoising trout, if they are slowly taking buzzers just below the surface swap to CDC emerger buzzers or Sandys Assassins
- try strike indicators or suspend a team of buzzers including Black Epoxy Buzzer with a Stimulator fly, Foam Arsed Blob or buoyant foam fly
- Be prepared to use small buzzers, although size 8 is a great point fly when boat fishing a size 16 or size 18 better matches natural trout buzzer sizes
We believe buzzers including Black Epoxy Buzzer are certainly one of the important flies in any stillwater fly fishermans box when fishing for Rainbow Trout and Brown Trout.
If you are on a stillwater then check our hatch charts to see what is likely to be hatching. On reservoirs and lakes natural flies that will almost always be about and catch brown and rainbow trout are midges which grow and emerge. All stages of the life-cycle can be imitated by Bloodworms which change into buzzers which we have a successful ranges of Buzzer fly patterns including Blank Buster Buzzers and Flashback Buzzers and Epoxy Buzzers / Nymphs. Once in the surface film we can imitated these by Assassin Emergers, Blank Buster CDC Emergers and Emergers and Suspenders which to the trout look like the midge pupae ready to hatch.
