From the educated Edward Ringwood Hewitt comes the Bivisiable. A pattern that is named for its function, as it is meant to be seen just as well by the fish as it is by the fisher. The darker of the two colors should show better to the fish’s eye while the lighter color creates nice contrast during a drift so it can be seen by you, the fly fisher. Being an attractor pattern this fly can be used to move fish that may be eating a variety of insects off the surface. It is a great trailing fly when fishing a larger dry in a two fly setup.
When simplicity and versatility meet, here comes the Renegade. This fly is a classic Fore and Aft style fly, and a favorite of the famous Ernest Hemingway, and for good reason. Created by Taylor “Beartracks” Williams in the late ’20s this fly is a go to attractor pattern. It can be tied and fished in a wide range of sizes to meet your fishing needs. Don’t get too caught up in what this fly is imitating and enjoy the takes!
