    Default The Gluzzer!

    Take two methods by gifted tyers, Scotfly and Mike Connor, combine them and "et Voila!" - the Gluzzer!

    This method is quick and simple and uses up those scraps of CDC if you have them otherwise, sacrifice a couple of puffs or feathers

    The usual disclaimer - Assuming right handed tyers!

    Materials -

    Thread - Black UTC
    Hook - Kamasan B100 size 12
    Rib - Fine silver wire
    Thorax - UHU and fiery brown CDC

    Step 1 - lay up touching turns of thread into the bend



    Step 2 - tie in rib



    Step 3 - run rib to thorax and tie in



    Step 4 - get thorax materials handy



    Step 5 - prepare CDC



    Step 6 - apply a little UHU to the thread then wrap into the thorax area



    Step 7 - cut your thread after tensioning it - it will disappear into the glue



    Step 8 - roll the glued area in the ready prepared CDC and form thorax



    Your completed Gluzzer is now ready to set aside for drying,

    Hmm, innovation and plagiarism in one fly
    Nice idea, thank you.

    Albannach - you clever man!

    Have you had much success with it or has it hit water yet ?

    Have you tried different coloured CDC or does it matter ?

    Thanks

    Am thinking that that buzzer could be improved using pearl mylar or silver tinsel under the thorax to give it some kick ?

    Just a thought ..........

    Albannach, was thinking of both - but together if you know what I mean - so the second photo looks good, but then your first submission looks even better as it has more CDC on it........

    Out of interest I presume UHU isn't necessarily needed - would Super glue do or maybe its not thick enough ?

    Super glue is too dangerous for me but might do the job!
