The Buzzer Olive 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 Buzzer Olive to imitage this stage of the midge's life. Do not be afraid of using small Buzzer Olive as a buzzer can be just a few millimetres long.
Buzzer Olive is shown as a pupa on the Midge Life Cycle drawing. The Buzzer Olive 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 Buzzer Olive 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.

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

Buzzer Olive Dry Fly Drifting (New Zealand Style)
In New Zealand they developed a fishing style with a very heavy, larger fly and a Buzzer Olive 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 Buzzer Olive using a foam fly. The Buzzer Olive can be used as part of a team of fishing flies to hunt out those Brown Trout. On rivers using a Buzzer Olive under a New Zealand rig is superb as both the Buzzer Olive 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.
