About the Glyn Hopper Buzzer Trout Fly

The Glyn Hopper Buzzer is a fly pattern that is used for fly fishing for trout and other freshwater fish species, it's typically used to imitate the adult stages of the buzzer, a type of midge. Midges are a very important food source for trout and other freshwater fish species, they are present in most freshwater systems and they are active throughout the year, making them a good food source for trout.

The Glyn Hopper Buzzer pattern is typically tied using materials such as black or dark coloured thread, with a fine wire or tungsten bead to add weight, and a dark coloured hackle to create a realistic representation of the buzzer. The pattern is usually fished on a floating line, with a slow retrieve.

The pattern is considered a versatile one, it can be fished in a variety of water types, and it's effective in different seasons, it's a great pattern for catching both rainbow and brown trout, and other fish species that feed on buzzers.
