    Blue Buzzer |
    Type of fly | chironomid, midge, larva, pupa, nymph, buzzer
    Originator of pattern if known | Joni
    Tied and Submitted by | Joni
    Intermediate, a little more complicated pattern, previous experience tying different types of patterns helpful
    Materials listed in order of tie in:|
    Hook | Tiemco 200BR size 16 here
    Thread | Black 10/0
    Tail | None
    Rib | Blue Flashabou
    Body | Thread, with a noticeable thickening in the front 1/3 of the hook.
    Wing case | Pearl Mylar. Tie in at the 1/3 point and leave extending to rear. Add "gills" (biots) along each side. Pull over wing case and tie off near eye
    Gills | Blue Turkey Biots on each side
    Head | Thread
    Special tying notes | When the fly is complete, coat with several coats of Sally Hansens Hard As Nails, let each coat dry before adding the next coat.
    Target species | Trout
    Fishing notes | Excellent imitation for Chironomid (midge) larvae. Great for nutirent rich tailwaters, spring creeks, ponds and lakes where midges are typically found.
