Adult Emerging Buzzers - New In & Back By Popular Demand
It is generally accepted that the natural food source which makes up the majority of a fish's diet in stillwaters is the buzzer - the pupal stage of the midge. At this time of year (Autumn) the buzzer is the staple of the Stillwater angler's fly box. We always try to do things a little different, and that's no exception with these Emerging Adult Buzzers we have for you today - these little beauties are not like your average buzzer!

Our Other Great Value Barbless Buzzers:
Our classic Barbless Buzzer Selection:
A buzzer is basically an imitation of the pupa of a midge (chironomid), most people will already know midges! Midges are abundant in every Stillwater and are a staple diet of the trout which live there, therefore buzzers are the "go-to" fly for the Stillwater angler.
These buzzers are great imitations and cover all of the standard buzzer patterns you will need to get you started (all tied on barbless hooks - of course!). In total there are 24 buzzers supplied in our eco-friendly packaging, all for only £24. All of these flies are tied on strong barbless hooks, in sizes 12 and 16 using quality materials.
We do not charge anything for delivery - to anywhere in the world.
I'm new here, what’s a Buzzer?
A Buzzer is basically an imitation of the pupa of a midge (chironomid), most people will already know midges! Midges are abundant in every Stillwater, and are a staple diet of the trout which live there, therefore buzzers are sometimes the "go-to" fly for the Stillwater angler.
Ok, so how do I fish them?
When it's Still: Use a floating line, long leader and a team of three buzzers. Cast out and, before the flies start to sink, pull the the line to straighten out the leader. Then pause (keeping in touch with the flies) and wait for the flies to drop, takes usually come with the buzzers on the drop. You should spot a take before you feel it, keep an eye on the fly line and leader for any abnormal movement. If the buzzers hits the bottom, just a few pulls on the fly line should bring them back to the surface, and you can start again by letting them sink.
When it's Windy: Still use a floating line, but this time use a shorted leader. Check the direction of the wind and cast out across the wind (i.e. the wind is side on to you) - always make sure the wind is to your left shoulder if you are right handed (and the right shoulder if you are left handed). Again, using a team of three buzzers, cast out and allow the buzzers to drift with the wind. You should not need to retrieve your line, as the wind will make sure your leader straightens up. Again, you will usually see the take before you feel it - just remember to strike in the opposite direction to the direction your flies are moving. Once at the end of your drift, lift the flies slowly from the water, it's surprising how many fish take your buzzers as you're about to re-cast!.
Tight lines (keep warm & dry) and have fun.
