Midges, Buzzers, Chironomids, and other flies of the order Diptera are very important in lakes. Much like soccer, midge fishing has been slow to catch on in North America, but it is an art form in Europe, especially Great Britain. Over the pond these little bugs are called Buzzers, but whether they are Buzzers, Midges, or Chironomids, imitations of these insects are proven fish catchers in lakes around the world. In fact, midges are probably the most eaten food items in lakes and so they offer more opportunities to catch fish. Fish midges in your local lakes. You may be surprised at the size of fish that you can catch.
