Beautiful

Is there a site where I might learn how to tie these buzzers?

If it is the wire I just bought it is super fine. It appears that there are two or three wraps of the wire per spiral. This wire is like there so I imagine having to put several wraps next to each other to make a stripe.

As for a site for buzzers, obviously not one with wire because this is something Crazy New and awesome idea, but check out.

Tying the Electric Blue Buzzer Midge by Davie McPhail - YouTube

they are made with a lot of different materials. Stripping quills make very cool bodies too, but this wire thing is so perfect...THANKS!!!!!! for sharing.

hi guys
the wire is .2mm, i have been using the wire bodies for 2 years now on steelhead patterns salmon flies and nymphs.
what i will do is do a short video and hopefully get it uploaded over the weekend
the beauty of these patterns is it is limited to your imagination, i think i did a topic on wire woven nymphs last year, the best pattern was the yellow stone nymph that we tried out last year on the Madison, over 30 fish in 1 hours session just inside the park entrance.
there is a video on my web site
the woven mayfly nymph here is the link

enjoy
