UV-BuzzerPosted on 13 April 2013 by Vincent
Inspired by PB’s flies, I’ve tied my own buzzer pattern. This one has a tungsten bead on it, but you can tie the same fly without a bead. Read on to find out more.
The buzzer I’ve tied is called the UV-Buzzer for 3 reasons:
- The butt color is a fluorescent one. This color reacts to UV light. This buzzer is meant for fishing in deeper parts of a lake under a bung. The light that penetrates these deeper parts best, is UV light. Colors that react to UV light stand out more in deep water layers.
- The thorax cover is made of UV-sparkle. It comes in long strands of about 20cm. This stuff really glows when the sunlight hits it.
- The fly is finished with an UV-resin.
For information on how to fish this fly, please read my article on PB’s flies.
