About the Crisp Packet Buzzer Trout Fly

The Crisp Packet Buzzer is a very versatile fly.

It is equally successful whether fished with a long leader, greased to within 6 inches of the fly, and cast to rising and bulging fish or used on a dropper with a big bushy dry sedge or on the point so the pupa will fish just below the surface with the dry fly acting as a floating bite indicator. It can also be fished at depth.

Do not retrieve at anything but the pace of a snail.
