Resin Buzzer Fly Tying Video

In this video, Simon ties an effective buzzer chironomid pattern for still-water fly fishing. Chironomids are often the first insect to hatch in high alpine lakes in the spring. When timed right, large fish can become very careless when putting on the spring time chironomid feed bag. The fly uses a stout Alec Jackson chironomid hook, which is essential for those strong lake fish. They are often fished using a floating line under an indicator, sometimes in tandem with another chironomid, balanced leech, or nymph. They can also be fished on an intermediate or full sink line using a slow “hand twist” retrieve. They can vary in size and color depending on the season and your location. Feel free to substitute colors and sizes tailored to your local fishery.
