Bead Head (BH) Bibio - Beadhead Nymph

The Bead Head (BH) Bibio is based on the Bibio created by Major Charles Roberts. This fly is also known as Goldhead Bibio and is part of our series of bead head nymphs

Bibio Creation

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.

Fly Tying Dressing

For the more adventurous among you we have provided tying specifications for the Bh Bibio. Remember at The Essential Fly we sell this fly at incredible prices with a top quality fly and service to back it up. It is certainly worth tying the Bead Head (BH) Bibio yourself to understand the pleasure of catching a fish with your own tied fly, however at the price we sell flies it is only worth tying one or two as your can spend more time fishing instead of tying flies - buy volume online with us.

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
