Silk Thread Buzzer

A simple fly using two colors of the Gütermann silk thread - two olive threads and a single black tied side by side and then wound using the rotary feature of my vice. Otherwise plain vanilla buzzer.

The tie:
#10 stillwater hook
2 threads of olive 1 thread of black silk thread
TMC Aero Dry Wing, tied cross wise for breathers
Black Australian Opossum dubbing for thorax


  1. Nice and clean looking fly. Since my father was a tailor I have the same type of silk thread too. "Big Jim" Leisenring liked this type of silk very much (it's used to make button holes). Very nice fly indeed!
    Have fun tying flies using silk thread,

  2. This fly is very interesting
