Shipman’s Buzzer – Davie McPhail

Davie ties up a trio of buzzers here running through 3 different dressings for the popular UK buzzer. It’s a really a simple fly to tie and works well on both sides of the pond. I like tying mine with seal fur and tend to stick to darker colors to imitate Chironomid pupae.

Hook: Kamasan size B170
Thread: Thread colour to suit pattern
Rib: Uni-Pearl
Body: Seals Fur or Sub
Breathers: Glo-Brite Multi-Yarn No16, White Etha Foam or Natural CDC Feathers
