Just wondered if anyone wanted to share some paterns of successful flies especially buzzers. A photo wood be good and materials used would be helpfull.
Iam still quite new to tying and any new ideas would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks

Apart from the Red Hooks, when i tie buzzers i tend to be very boring

Black wire wound up a curved hook and a glo-brite 5 (orange) thorax built up like a low profile match.Then varnish whole fly.

thats the heavy one and the one for coloured water, i tie it with thread body to sink slower.

In clear water i tie both with glo brite cheeks and a black thorax.

Using olive instead of black covers just about every buzzer that hatches this far north

Sizes 12-18 :z16

Its a good allround pattrn, the trout seem to be especially aggressive towards the yellow and green ones

i use black thread boady with a built up black thread thorax with silver or gold thorax cover.the same body in olive and red works well.normall catch on them every time i use them

as sandy was saying add some glo brite cheeks works quite well too

round about size 12 to 18.

ive got some tyed on size 6 grub hooks tyed with a short body which i put one the point if i want the cast to sink very fast

Happy hunting

Thats almost suitable for sharks stuart! Never even knew they made them that big. Do you catch much on a size 6 or is that just a spring pattern?

Hi Baz ,
           i've 2 buzzer patterns that really do some damage for me , both have black holographic tinsel underbody and are ribbed with either black or brown flexifloss the varnished . Keep the ribbing quite sparse as the varnish seems to melt the flexifloss and it spreads hiding the tinsel .

Black holo tinsel, try sportfish or GAC

you can get green,red,black,purple as well as gold and silver.

Cool stuff for experiments. :grin:

Somers , but you'll find it anywhere . I used the thinest(fine) as it gives a slimmer buzzer than using medium or thick

got it!

My favourite pattern is a Bangour Buzzy and so easy to make

Size 10 or 12 Buzzer hook
Start by putting a small gold metal bead on up to the eye, make sure you put the small hole on first so it doesnt cover eye, followed by a red plastic one, then use black thread to cover shank and form a small thorax shape to stop beads moving and rib it with silver wire, varnish twice.

To make a lighter Bangour Buzzy substitute metal bead with a Gold plastic one.

lf someone would like to explain how to post a piccy l will see what l can do.

Thanks for all the feedback gents!. Its amazing how many different styles are favourites. Would you agree the majority of the best buzzers are the ones that are not available over the counter!
