A deadly pattern wherever dark buzzers are hatching. Used on a floating line, the fly is cast out and then either wait for the trout to take the fly, or cover a rise with the fly.
Makes an alternative to the CDC buzzer
Take a small polystyrene booby ball and encase it tightly in some nylon tight material. Catch this in using the tying thread and cut off excess. Make a tidy thorax with the thread.
Catch in some fine mylar tinsel and proceed with mylar and tying thread down to the hook bend.
Carefully dub a small rope of black seals fur up the hook shank, at the a point just short of the middle , dub on some red seals fur, at the upper end of the hookshank dub on some more black seals fur and continue towards the eye.
Make a tidy rib with the pearl mylar tinsel until the thorax is reached. Be careful not to pull the mylar too tight, otherwise it will turn blue. Secure the mylar and cut off excess.
For the remainder of the thorax dub in some more black seals fur, not so tightly as before and cast the thread off at the hook eye. Pick out the seals fur with a dubbing needle to give the fly a more buggy look and feel to it.
Pick out some of the seals fur with a dubbing needle to make the fly as "buggy" or slim looking as required.
