Selectafly Buzzers, Blobs & Bungs from 70p
AT this time of year buzzer fishing really comes to the fore, and whether you are using a Buzzer under a bung on a small fishery or a team of Buzzers and a single Blob on the reservoirs, Selectafly have got it covered. Their flies are normally shipped the same day for orders received before 3pm and they offer free delivery for fly orders over £15 (UK only). 1 | T15 Jelly Blobs These are tied on size 10 Kamasan B160 hooks (barbed) and they fit within the international fly hook gauge so are competition legal. The main ingredient is Flybox’s T15 translucent fritz, a lovely soft material that folds back around the hook and takes on a ‘jelly-like’ appearance when wet. They are available in tequila, cocktail coral, biscuit, red, UV white, fire orange and orange. The barbed patterns are 70p and they are also available in a barbless range at 85p each.
2 | Pro Ultimate Bung
This neat and really simple pattern is made from Tiemco Aero Dry Wing, a quality polypropylene yarn. The yarn’s fibres are made up of hollow chambers making the material lighter than water and very buoyant. A three-quarter inch post of the pink Dry Wing is tied in shuttlecock-style so it is highly visible, and also makes it easy to see when the Buzzers suspended underneath have hit their depth as the bung will cock upright. Available in size 10 at £1.50.
3 | Buzzers
The Buzzers featured here form part of Selectafly’s ‘Pro’ range and are tied on quality Tiemco and Gamakatsu hooks. Pro team member David Malpas is responsible for the Green Glow Buzzer (size 12, £1), a neat little grub hook pattern that combines an olive body with a pearl thorax. Great for imitating those hatches of small green buzzers. The SBD ‘subtle but deadly’ Buzzer (size 10, £1) is a more sombre pattern, ideal for when the fish have become wary of brighter offerings. This has a golden olive abdomen and thorax with a stripped quill rib and white cheeks. Matt’s Hatching Buzzer (size 14, £1.20) has a nicely tied stripped quill abdomen with peacock herl thorax, cheeks of orange tinsel and a soft grey hen hackle in front. Pro team member Matt Harris developed it for imitating buzzers hatching in the top layers.
