Carnill’s Buzzer 

Carnhills buzzer was tied by one of the best fly-dressers in the UK, undeniably Bob Carnhill. When a new black streak flat shooting-head nylon came out he tied probably some of the most realistic representations of the hatching buzzer that has been seen to this day. They work exceptionally well when fished high in the surface film to nymphing trout.
