Bead Head (BH) Bibio
The Bibio was created in the late 1950's or 60's by Major Charles Roberts of the Burrisholle Fishery in Mayo and has received a great deal of attention and usage throughout the UK. It was originally tied to represent the heather beetle for sea-trout on loughs Furnace and Feeagh. The Bibio has now become one of the great Irish wet flies for brown trout, sea-trout & salmon. The Bibio is taken for a large range of dark insects from duckflies to beetles. Water conditions will determine the size of fly to be fished. The Bibio is a good taker of salmon and sea-trout when fished on the dropper on rippled pools in West Ireland rivers.

Bead Head (BH) Bibio lure or Bead Head (BH) Bibio streamer
The Bead Head (BH) Bibio is a type of lure or streamer fly. Streamers or lures fall into two categories, imitator streamers or attractor streamers. The Black, Olive, Natural and White Woolly Buggers Zonker are imitator streamers. An imitator streamer represenst a specific type of food, which is preyed upon by the trout, typically a small fish for example. As Trout are territorial and they will defend their territory against invading fish the fly-fishermen can use this knowledge to their advantage. Using an imitator streamer a trout can be fooled into attacking what he thinks is fry invading its territory. The alternative to an imitator fly is an attractor fly or as some fishermen call them 'piss them off fly'. A brightly coloured attractor fly is retrieved past the nose of a large brown trout or rainbow in hiding can excite a trout into striking if it thinks its feeding territory is under attack stimulating a big hit. Sometimes Trout will strike out of simple curiosity just to see if it is edible even though it does not look like their normal food. Sometimes bright, flashy flies drive them crazy or just annoy them. Some for example a Red Zonkers are attractors streamer fly patterns, these are not designed to represent a particular baitfish but to excite a predatory trout into striking using brightly colored and reflective materials in their design.
The brass bead head fly types which includes the Bead Head (BH) Bibio has become one of the most popular fly types in overall trout fly sales. This is because the weight of the brass bead helps keep the Bead Head (BH) Bibio very close to the bottom where trout are used to seeing and capturing naturals.
The flash of the brass bead in Bead Head (BH) Bibio has also proven to be very attractive to several other kinds of sport fish. Its possible that it just makes the Bead Head (BH) Bibio easier for the fish to locate. Roman Moser states that the roots of the Gold Head or Pearl Head flies lie in the Northern Italian area. At the turn of the century the fishermen of Piemont, Bergamo, Brescia and Friulia fished in their alpine rivers with a bead headed nymph for spin fishing. The beads came from the glass making area of Murano (Venice). This type of nymph was then used by Roman in 1978 when the Roman Moser bottom downstream technique was born as shown in the video "New ways with the caddises and new ways with mayflies". Because the flies were light made of glass Roman experimented with Cabela's spinner bodies made of brass, goldheads were born.
Nobody understood this until he published the making of that Gold Head in the German magazine "Fliegenfischer" January/March issue 1985. The article was titled: "New ways of fishing the caddis". He found out that when sedge flies were hatching, the Gold Head was most successfull, possibly because the bead resembled the air bubble thorax of the natural nymph. The beadhead is now used on many types of flies, beadhead nymphs and beadhead lure or beadhead streamers and this the Bead Head (BH) Bibio.
