Buzzer Orange A Fishing Fly

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.
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.
