Tying a Parachute Bibio Hopper with Davie McPhail

Today we are checking out Davie, tying a Parachute Bibio Hopper. This pattern is a high visibility, high floating dry fly that is unbeatable on stillwaters and rivers for Trout or Grayling. You can tie this fly with different coloured wings so you'll always have one you can see, regardless of the light conditions.

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 Parachute Bibio Hopper, with the guidance of Davie McPhail. 




Materials Used:

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

Davie's preferred type of whip finish tool can be found HERE!
