Instructions: Bivisible

Tying Instructions: Brown Bivisible

1. Attach the thread to the hook shank behind the eye.
Step One
2. Lay a thread foundation to the bend of the hook.
Step Two
3. Select a saddle hackle sized to the hook. Remove the fibers from the base of the hackle and secure the hackle stem to the side of the hook shank at the bend of the hook. The shiny side of the hackle should face the eye.
Step Three
4. Wrap the hackle forward with touching wraps, carefull not to trap any hackle fibers. Wrap up to the 3/4 position of the hook shank and secure with a couple of thread wraps.
Step Four
5. Trim off the tag end of the rear hackle and apply a few more thread wraps to secure. Attach a white hackle at the 3/4 position with the shiny side facing forward.
Step Five
6. Apply 5-6 wraps and secure behind the eye with a couple of thread wraps.
Step Six
7. Trim off the tag end and build a small thread head.
Step Seven
8. Apply a whip finish.
Step Eight
9. Add some head cement.
Step Nine
10. The finished Brown Bivisible. If done correctly, you do not need to trim the bottom hackle tips. Quality hackles are uniform in size and will achieve a even profile to the fly.
