I'm aware of there life cycle,what you posted is a red buzzer and not a bloodworm.Cant understand why you would want to imitate a natural and add something they don't have

I believe (I could be wrong- fully prepared to stand corrected) that when the trout are rising with there fins out the water or just rising but not taking from the surface they are 'charging' at reeds below in order to scare prey out from there homes so they can then munch them! I read this yesterday funnily enough.

Corr dont you lot know nowt.

The first thing trout learn at trout school is the nematoceran fly family chironomidae dont have breathers. Ok it doesnt sink in with the rainbows until they are three weeks old but none of them will be fooled by this miserable attempt. Now a bit of silver paper scrunched round a size 4 stripped at 50 knotts, thats a different matter.

Hi,

From what you describe it seems like they may be feeding just below the surface. I've been quite successful with CDC shuttlecock buzzers when this feeding pattern occurs. The body of the fly sits below the surface of the water while the CDC is above surface allowing you to see any takes. I think these are great flies and you can fish them in pairs even in different colours for example, olive coloured, black or claret.

Hope this helps. Tight lines!

Nick.
