Buzzer Orange A Fishing Fly

Buzzer Orange

is designed to imitate buzzers or chironomids as they emerge through the water to hatch into midges. Midges hatch 365 days a year to flies like Buzzer Orange 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 Buzzer Orange to imitate that movement. A team of flies often consists of 3 buzzers including one or more Buzzer Orange for trout on a droppered leader, with the heaviest (or largest) buzzer on the point. Never strip a team of buzzers including Buzzer Orange, 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 Buzzer Orange 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 Buzzer Orange.

When using buzzers the best fishing method is to keep it slow! What are the best Buzzer Orange fishing techniques? firstly the biggest mistake made by fly fishermen is because they are used to stripping lures they try the same techniques with Buzzer Orange. Buzzer fly fishing is a slow technique, use Buzzer Orange 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 Buzzer Orange. Alternatively use a buoyant foam fly or stimulator flies  to suspend a team of buzzers including Buzzer Orange when buzzer fishing for trout 

  1. Do NOT strip trout buzzers
  2. Static or slow drift team including Buzzer Orange
  3. Vary depth of the team, trout will feed at different levels at different times of the day
  4. look for porpoising trout, if they are slowly taking buzzers just below the surface swap to CDC emerger buzzers or Sandys Assassins
  5. try strike indicators or suspend a team of buzzers including Buzzer Orange with a Stimulator fly, Foam Arsed Blob or buoyant foam fly
  6. 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 Buzzer Orange 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.

Buzzers which the Buzzer Orange 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 Orange 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.

<span itemprop="name">Buzzer Orange</span> a buzzer for trout fishing

The Buzzer Orange 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 Orange to imitage this stage of the midge's life. Using small Buzzer Orange does work as a natural buzzer pupa can be just a few millimetres long.



Fishing Techniques Using Buzzer Orange

<span itemprop="name">Buzzer Orange</span>

Buzzer feeding actually occurs 365 days per year!. With little weight Buzzer Orange will drop gently through the water, often used as part of a team of flies. Fished in a different ways the Buzzer Orange is a great fly when grayling & trout are feeding on buzzers / nymphs which the Buzzer Orange mimics.

<span itemprop="name">Buzzer Orange</span> fished staticThe Buzzer Orange can be fished static in 3 different ways, Bung or Thingamabobber Buzzer Orange drifting, Buzzer Orange buzzer team drifting and Buzzer Orange dry fly drifting or as it is also called using the Buzzer Orange New Zealand style.

Buzzer Orange In A New Zealand Rig or Dry Fly Drifting

<span itemprop="name">Buzzer Orange</span> drifted with a dry flyUsing a larger buoyant fly in New Zealand they developed a fishing style where a fly like a Buzzer Orange 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 Orange under a buoyant foam fly. The Buzzer Orange 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 Orange in a a New Zealand rig rewarding as both the supporting buoyant dry fly and Buzzer Orange 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 Orange

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

Drifting A Buzzer Orange With A Thingamabobber or Bung

<span itemprop="name">Buzzer Orange</span> drifted with a Thingamabobber or bungThe Buzzer Orange can be used as part of a team of flies and drifted under a Thingamabobber or a bung. Typically buzzers like Buzzer Orange 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 Orange is successful on both reservoirs and rivers. On rivers utlizing a Thingamabobber works well as it provides buouancy holding the Buzzer Orange 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 Orange is smooth or that the team with the Buzzer Orange can be held on riffles and creases in the stream.
