A Lesson in tying the Olive Lite Brite Buzzer by Davie McPhail

This week, Davie keeps it simple once again when he ties an Olive Lite Brite Buzzerk, with very few materials. This fly is basically a black and olive version of a buzzer, similar to Fulling Mill's offerings of this Fluorescent Green Olive Buzzer and Buzzer 3D Glass Dark Olive

All of the materials needed to tie this fly are available from Glasgow Angling Centre as listed below, but as always if you need any help finding materials or substitutes then we'll be happy to help. Without further ado, here's Davie McPhail tying his take on an Olive Lite Brite Buzzer.



Materials Used:
Hook: Fulling Mill All-Purpose Medium Sz10
Thread: UTC Thread - Black (70)
Rib: Olive Super-Stretch Floss
Body: UTC Thread - Black (70)
Wingbuds: Davie uses his own mix of Gold and Pearl Olive Lite-Brite fibres, however suitable replacements include FlashabouMirror Flash or Mirage Tinsel
Additional materials: Additionally, Davie used Fulling Mill's UV Glass Resin and a clear varnish to spruce up the appearance of the fly.

Davie's preferred type of whip finish tool can be found HERE!
