Red Butt Quilled Buzzer – Davie McPhail

I really like this little chironomid from Davie. One thing I really like it the economy of the thread wraps he uses to keep the fly thin. It has a nice segmentation with the quill body, and the light coat of resin will make it indestructible. Personally I would tie this on a curved shank hook

Hook: Kamasan B170 size 10
Butt: Flo- Fire Orange UTC Thread 70
