Bead Head (BH) Bibio - Beadhead Nymph

The Bead Head (BH) Bibio is based on the Bibio created by Major Charles Roberts. The Bead Head (BH) Bibio is also known as Goldhead Bibio

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.

Second cast with this fly got me a fish. A well tied fly, glad I got a few as I can see them bringing me a lot of takes.

Great Service, flies are well tied but it may be a while before I get to use them in earnest.

Excellent service. The flies were very well tied and they caught grayling on the two occasions I have fished them
