• Red Bibio Bumble

This is the famous bumble pattern originally devised for the Salmon & Sea Trout of the Burrishoole fishery in Co. Mayo in Ireland. The Bibio got it's name from the latin name given to the Heather Fly, which is often to be found being blown onto the waters of upland rivers and lakes. The fly was originally designed with a central band of Claret between two bands of Black Seals Fur. Our variant contains four bands of Seals fur in the body, Black, Red, Black and Red again at the tail. Originally designed as a top dropper fly par excellence, the fly has also been very successful when fished in smaller sizes alone or as a tail fly on a cast of two or three wet flies. It's versatility even extends to it being fished dry or damp when dark coloured terrestrials are about on either river or lake. It will catch Brown Trout, Sea Trout, Rainbow Trout and Salmon with equal gusto and is rarely omitted from the cast by fishers in the know once afloat on the larger loughs. The 'secret' of this pattern is that it will represent many species of insect hatches without actually imitating any of them to any close degree.
