WF8-BT - XS Buzzer Line (Olive Tip/Ivory)

The now renownded ‘Buzzer’ line was developed especially for optimum performance when fishing the ubiquitous and hugely rewarding style of the buzzer, whether from the bank or boat. This fly line has the same profile as the ever popular XS Floating Ivory, but the last 3-4ft of the front taper section is coloured a neutral shade of olive where it has been purposely designed to sink slowly and improve successful ‘hook ups’ and ‘feel’, when buzzer fishing or straight line nymphing in particular, resulting in countless extra fish.

The recipe in the "Fly patterns of British Columbia" called for a topping of heron hackle sprigs, which I have omitted.
