LaFontaine Improved Buzz Ball

Hook: Tiemco 100 or 101 - standard dry fly hook

Size: 14-16

Thread: 8/0 brown

Body: Medium dun and orange grizzly hackle palmered and trimmed to hook gape.

Overbody: Grizzly hackle

Wing: Antron, white or clear

Notes: This fly does a really great job of imitating those large midge clusters often found in early spring on tailwaters. Gary LaFontaine originally tied it without the Antron wing, but it was later added to make it more visible to the angler on those gray days.

 

This fly pattern is excerpted from Fly Fishing Montana's Missouri River and also appears in Gary's book Trout Flies available from www.thebookmailer.com.
