    Default Lovely Buzzer pattern

    After Pascal Cognard's visit, a number of fly fishers have started to fish buzzer with new vigour.
    here is a lovely pattern.
    And with the UV thread of Mario, this might provide some inspiration.

    The writing is in Norwegian, but the photos are are clear enough and the recipe is good enough to understand.

    I have seen patterns up to #20.

    Buzzer fishing is still in its embrio stage.
    Chatting with some of the European guys about buzzer fishing is fascinating.
    You realise how much there is to learn

    If you think about a Caenis fly (fisherman's curse) and matching pattern.

    The flies are tiny, how small must the nymphs be, and the other types of small insects you find next to the dams.
    Some "muggies" or buzzers are tiny.

    Agree. I normally never tie them bigger then #16, normally #18. I was quite surprised at #12s.

    I have seen the bigger ones, but never the real small ones.
    At Lakensvlei, I have seen buzzer shucks washed up on the shore that were about 20 to 25mm long.

    When i spoke to Pascal at lenght about buzzer fishing and how the fish feed on them, it was interesting.

    Sometimes, the fish will be very slowly cruising and gently sipping the buzzers at a certain depth, with the take so gentle and so soft, that it is almost impossible to detect.
    Other times, especially when there are competition form other fish, the fish will dart, shoot between the buzzers snapping and slashing at each buzzer. These takes are so quick and aggresive, that you can easily snap off.
