This is a great buzzer pattern for fishing reservoirs when the big buzzer hatches occur. When the fish are feeding a bit deeper this big heavy pattern is an ideal point fly for straight line nymphing to pull the rest of your cast into the feeding zone. Similarly, a point fly for under the bung to get your flys to the correct depth and fishing as quickly as possible.
