Tying the Bivisible Moose (Video)

The Bivisible Moose

The Bivisible Moose is one of my favorite early spring search patterns. On waters where the Hendricksons, Quills and March Browns are present, this pattern will bring them to the top whether a hatch is present or not. The original pattern was tied Brown/Grizzly as in my book "Tomorrows Fish". However, on local waters over the past few years I have found a Golden Badger or Cree with Brown is slightly more effective.
