Tying a Sedgehog Bibio with Davie McPhail

Created by an angler named Stan Headley, the Sedgehog fly is a brilliant fly that can be fished anywhere across the UK and Ireland. The Sedgehog is a large, buoyant fly that creates huge amounts of disruption when retrieved. This wave of disruption will attract that attention of any lingering Trout to investigate as it submerges and pops back up. This pop up action is what catches you Fish. The Sedgehog is a favorite on a windy day.

All of the materials needed to tie this fly are available from Glasgow Angling Centre as listed below, but as always, if you need any help finding materials or substitutes then we'll be happy to help. Time to tie a Mosaic Dabbler International Fly, with the guidance of Davie McPhail. 

Materials Used:
Hook: Fulling Mill Competition Heavyweight size 12 Thread: Uni-8/0 Black Wing: Roe Deer Hair from back to front... Body: Black, Red and Black Seals Fur or Sub Hackle: Black Cock

Additional materials: Additionally, Davie made use of Varnish, which he applied to the thread after completing the fly.
