The Black Buzzer imitates a buzzer in its nymph stage as it comes to emerge into an adult midge. This is a light buzzer without a beadhead so flutters more gently through the water. A midge starts life in muddy water as a bloodworm or chironomide which is blood red in color. When ready to emerge this wiggles to the surface and this is when we use a Black Buzzer to imitage this stage of the midge's life. Do not be afraid of using small Black Buzzer as a buzzer can be just a few millimetres long.
Black Buzzer is shown as a pupa on the Midge Life Cycle drawing. The Black Buzzer is a very good imitation of a pupa. The pupa can be olive, red, brown, black or other colours according to the water and where the buzzer imitated by the Black Buzzer is in the water column. Buzzers start blood red when at the bottom of the water and change as they rise to the surface to emerge.
Black Buzzer Fishing Techniques
The Black Buzzer will sink aslowly unless used with beadhead /goldhead or other heavier flies in a team. The Black Buzzer can be fished in a variety of ways and the Black Buzzer is a super fly when trout are feeding on buzzers which the Black Buzzer imitates. Buzzers emerge 365 days per year so using the Black Buzzer works all year imitating natural buzzers matching the hatch!.

Black Buzzer Thingamabobber Drifting
The Black Buzzer can be used as part of a team of 3 or just two fishing flies and suspended then drifted under a bung or really well under a Thingamabobber. These can be Black Buzzer and other buzzers or Black Buzzer invarying sizes and colours. Using a team of fishing flies with Black Buzzer works well on both reservoirs and on rivers. On rivers using a Thingamabobber works well acting as an excellent bite indicator on turbulent or fast waters. Using the Black Buzzer in this way works well as a Thingamabobber moves with both the current and wind at a more natural speed to the water conditions.

Drifting Black Buzzer As Part of a Team Of Fishing Flies
The Black Buzzer can be used as part of a team of 2 of three fishing flies. Try Black Buzzer and other buzzers or alternatively use Black Buzzer in different sizes or colours for example use a size 12, 14 and 16 with the heaviest Black Buzzer as the point fly. The droppered leader can be used with a floating line and the Black Buzzer and other flies can be drifted with the wind and current moving the fly line and hence moving the Black Buzzer gently making in behave like the natural pupa the Black Buzzer imitates.

Black Buzzer Dry Fly Drifting (New Zealand Style)
In New Zealand they developed a fishing style with a very heavy, larger fly and a Black Buzzer which is tied to a tippet attached to the bend or the eye of the large dry fly. This is deadly when used with a highly buoyant fly like Goddard Caddis, alternatively a heavy hackled klinkhammer or suspend the Black Buzzer using a foam fly. The Black Buzzer can be used as part of a team of fishing flies to hunt out those Brown Trout. On rivers using a Black Buzzer under a New Zealand rig is superb as both the Black Buzzer and the dry fly act as trout flies to attract trout and simultaneously present flies at surface and underwater catching trout at all stages of feeding. Using a Klinkhammer you are also presenting an emerging insect making the maximum of all opportunities.
