Tied by: Steve Labrecque
Originated by: Robert (Bob) Bibeau
Source: Tandem Streamers by Donald A. Wilson, - Pg. 98-99

Hook: Tandem rig (#4 Mustad 3399 hook up front, #4 rear hook being connected with wire cable)
Thread: Red
Body: Red thread (floss used on single)
Rib: Silver flat tinsel
Wing: Sparse red bucktail under white bucktail under yellow bucktail under black bucktail
Head: Red

Notes: Bob and his wife Frances moved to the Sebago area in 1959 landing in North Windham. Bob was a Maine fishing guide and he also tied streamers for L.L. Bean. The Bibeau patterns have a tend to be lightly dressed with bucktail with only a few strands being tied in at a time. This makes for a more durable fly as it's less likely the hairs will pull out from the head of the fly. Many of the patterns include a red head, a nod to Frances' fiery red hair. Steve says that the sparseness of Bob Bibeau's patterns are ideal for the clear waters of Sebago Lake. Steve tied this one on the heavy side in order to photograph it and suggests it be tied sparser for fishing.

The GFF money box

… I have a small favor to ask.

Long story short

Support the Global FlyFisher through several different channels, including PayPal.

Long story longer

The Global FlyFisher has been online since the mid-90's and has been free to access for everybody since day one – and will stay free for as long as I run it.
But that doesn't mean that it's free to run.
It costs money to drive a large site like this.
