Buzzer Fishing Flies

Buzzer fishing flies imitate the pupa of a midge. Popular among stillwater or freshwater anglers around the world as well as in the UK, the use of buzzers can produce great results. Buzzer fishing flies are a firm favourite among trout anglers .

A popular way to fish with buzzers is by using a team of three. One buzzer is positioned right at tip of the leader and the other two are positioned further along the rod (a few feet apart).

Buzzer fishing flies and the strike indicator method

One way that anglers use buzzer fishing flies is by applying the strike indicator (also known as bung) method. The strike indicator floats on the water and either one, two or three buzzers are suspended beneath it. This style gives anglers greater control of the depth at which they fish.

A similar method can be applied without the strike indicator. Anglers using this method will use a team of three buzzers one heavy, one light and one mid-way between the two. These are cast and then retrieved really slowly so the buzzers stay in position at three different depths.

Buzzer fishing flies and the washing line method

Another popular tactic for using buzzer fishing flies is the washing line method. In this method, a floating line and a long leader are used to suspend the team of three or sometimes four fishing buzzers.

The length of the leader and the spacing of buzzer fishing flies will affect the depth of fishing. The size and type of buzzer will have an impact upon how it works, some sink fast, while others will sink more slowly.

Buzzer fishing flies and the straight line method

The straight line method is a classic technique for using buzzer fishing flies. Using a team of three (or sometimes four) buzzer flies, anglers position the heaviest buzzer at the tip of the leader and the lightest buzzer closest to the surface of the water.

By lifting and dropping the rod repeatedly, anglers imitate the natural behaviour of the insect, increasing their chances of success.
