Buzzer Green A Fishing Fly
Buzzers which the Buzzer Green imitates are midge pupa, they take their name from the buzzing noise they make when in a swarm. Buzzers hatch out on virtually every day of the year.
Our buzzers including Buzzer Green gives a natural ribbed effect to the fly. This fly has worked wonders on stillwaters, ideally they are fished very slowly on a floating line and as long a leader as you are can use. A very slow figure-of-eight retrieve is normally best; occasionally if there is a lot of buzzer activity fairly fast stripping can work well. Quite often this will be taken on the drop.
The Buzzer Green imitates a midge in its nymph stage ready to emerge into an adult midge. Starting life in muddy water as a bloodworm or chironomide which is blood red in color and changing into the midge as an adult. When the ready to emerge into a midge it ascends to the surface of the water, This is when we use a Buzzer Green to imitage this stage of the midge's life. Using small Buzzer Green does work as a natural buzzer pupa can be just a few millimetres long.
Fishing Techniques Using Buzzer Green

Fished in a different ways the Buzzer Green is a great fly when grayling & trout are feeding on buzzers / nymphs which the Buzzer Green mimics.
The Buzzer Green can be fished static in 3 different ways, Bung or Thingamabobber Buzzer Green drifting, Buzzer Green buzzer team drifting and Buzzer Green dry fly drifting or as it is also called using the Buzzer Green New Zealand style.

Buzzer Green In A New Zealand Rig or Dry Fly Drifting
Using a larger buoyant fly in New Zealand they developed a fishing style where a fly like a Buzzer Green is tied to a tippet then attached to the hook bend of the large supporting fly superb when utilizing a highly buoyant fly like a heavy hackled klinkhammer, a buoyant elk hair caddis or floating the Buzzer Green under a buoyant foam fly. The Buzzer Green can be used as part of a team or flies at the depth fish are feeding to hunt for Brown Trout. On streams & rivers using Buzzer Green in a a New Zealand rig rewarding as both the supporting buoyant dry fly and Buzzer Green act as lures and simultaneously present fishing flies at surface and underwater catching trout at all stages of feeding. The top fly also acts well as a bite indicator even in faster waters if well hackled.

Drifting a team of Buzzers Including Buzzer Green
The Buzzer Green can be used as part of a team of multiple trout fishing flies. The Buzzer Green and other buzzers / nymphs or Buzzer Green in different colours and sizes. The leader with droppers can be used with a floating flyline and the Buzzer Green and other fishing flies can be allowed to drift with the wind and current. This moves the flyline and therefore drifts the Buzzer Green slowly like the natural buzzer the Buzzer Green imitates.

Drifting A Buzzer Green With A Thingamabobber or Bung
The Buzzer Green can be used as part of a team of flies and drifted under a Thingamabobber or a bung. Typically buzzers like Buzzer Green and other buzzers in different sizes or colours can be used, for example tr size 12, 14 and 16 buzzers with the largest as point fly. Using a buoyant fly fishing team like this with Buzzer Green is successful on both reservoirs and rivers. On rivers utlizing a Thingamabobber works well as it provides buouancy holding the Buzzer Green at a fixed depth in the feeding zoneand can act as a tremendous bite indicator on turbulent or rapid waters with the Thingamabobber drifting with both the wind and the current. Upstream mends can ensure that the drift with the Buzzer Green is smooth or that the team with the Buzzer Green can be held on riffles and creases in the stream.
