Trout Fisherman (UK) - - Fly Masters - MICHAEL POLIN

HOOK: Size 12 wide gape BREATHERS: White marabou THREAD: Black BODY: Black high-den­sity foam and sil­ver nail var­nish WING BUDS: Dyed orange goose biots THO­RAX: Black fur HACKLE: Black hen

PETER SAYS: The Buzzer Pu pa is tied to rep­re­sent duck fly, small-to-medium sized black midges, which hatch off early in the year on many large nat­u­ral lakes. Michael’ s im­i­ta­tion is tied for Ir­ish wa­ters such as Mask and She el in but also works on rain­bow trout fish­eries. The slim, de­tached body of black foam pro­vides a small amount of buoy­ancy. The ap­pli­ca­tion of sil­ver nail var­nish along the sides adds a touch of spark le, while as parse black hen hack le helps in sug­gest­ing a buzzer at the point of emerg­ing.
