Jojo’s Compara-buzz is one of our all-time favorite dry flies from the mind of Joe Moore. This hybrid creation was inspired by the great Gary Lafontaine’s Buzz Ball. Joe added a Comparadun style deer hair wing and a synthetic Widow’s Web trailing shuck for added visibility and flotation on the bouncy riffles of the Madison. It was originally tied to imitate caddis as they ride high or skitter on the surface. Over time, however, we’ve found it to be an effective midge cluster on the smooth flows of the Missouri, and small fluttering stonefly imitation as well. We even fish it as a general attractor on small backcountry streams as well. Its scruffy appearance is intentional, and adds to the fly’s highly suggestive appeal.
