I have a fascination with Bi-Visibles. It was the second fly I
ever fished with when I was just learning the art. I'll never forget
my first cast produced a beautiful little 12" brown. Ever since
then I've always made sure there's a variety of them in my fly box(s).
The first Bi-Visible (Brown) is credited to Edward Hewitt. Mr. Hewitt
was a renowned fly fisherman from the Catskills. Although tied in many
colors and combinations the fly I present to you today is unique. I call
it the Bee Visible because of the yellow and black combination, which
by the way, is the best producing color combination I've found for bright
Thread: Black, 6/0
Body: Yellow and Black Hackle Fibers.
Hackle: White Hackle Fibers.
Step #1. Tie in a good thread base. This is especially important with this fly. Since our entire body is composed of hackle; we don't want it slipping around.
Step #2. Starting at the rear of the hook tie in a yellow hackle fiber.
Step #3. Next, tie in and wrap a black hackle. Repeat the sequence one more time (one yellow hackle and one black hackle).
Step #4. Now that the body is complete. Tie in the white face hackle.
Step #5. Wrap the face hackle, tie it off. Whip finish the head, clip the thread and add head cement.
