Shipmans Buzzer Selection

Regular price £16.00

Shipmans Buzzer Selection.

The Shipmans Buzzer, created in the 1970’s by Dave Shipman to imitate chironomid hatches on Rutland Water, these can be fished in a number of different ways:

  • Dry: On a floating line (think of them as a dry fly) gink them up and fish them high on the water. Let the wind drif the fly (or flies), or retrieve very slowly.
  • Emerging: Gink up half of the buzzer and fish half in/half out.
  • Wet: Apply Xink to the buzzer and fish it sunk.

These flies are all tied on strong barbless size 10 & 12 hooks. This select comes with 16 flies (4 different patterns, 2 of each sizes 10 and 12).

We only have 25 selections available. If the demand is there we will have more tied and offer them alongside our other selections. Once again, we do not charge anything for delivery. Descriptions and photo's of the flies can be found below:

Black Shipmans. Tied with CdC at both ends with a black body and tinsel rib. Looks scruffy, but works! This selection contains 2 each of sizes 10 and 12.

Olive Shipmans.  Tied with CdC at both ends with an olive body and tinsel rib. Looks scruffy, but works! This selection contains 1 each of sizes 10 and 12.

Note: Should the "Tree Trout" steal any of your flies, I am happy to sell flies individually to allow you to top up your box. Please contact me using this link with details of your order, and I will email you an invoice. These flies can be bought individually for £1.00 per fly.

The above price includes 16 hand-tied barbless Shipmans Buzzers with a free 8-compartment fly box. We now offer the option to upgrade to a Premium Silicone Fly Box for an extra £6, for details of the box we offer see here.

We currently have these fly selections in stock and will ship these to you as soon as we receive notification of your payment, generally if a payment is made in the morning your flies will be with you the very next day. All products from Barbless-Flies are shipped free of charge.
