Tying an Olive Lite-Brite Buzzer with Davie McPhail

Buzzers trout flies are a midge pupa and are so called because of the buzzing noise they make in swarms. Buzzer Trout Flies start in life as a bloodworm and live in the mud usually in still waters. As they grow, the red colour fades and swim from the mud to the surface in a wriggling action. Once they reach the surface, they will wait before hatching and so quite often drop back down a few times, this is a great period for the trout to feed on buzzer flies. Davie McPhail's Olive buzzer makes use of bright colours and patterns that are sure to get any hungry Trout, feeding.

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. Time to tie the Olive Lite-Brite Buzzer, with the guidance of Davie McPhail.
