Bibio Pomonae is a species of the Dipteras, and in the Bibionidae family. It can reach of about 10-13mm in lenght. The body is often shiny black, with a long black abdomen. Deep crimson-red femurs and dark tibiae and tarsi (legs), as we often want to imitate while tying this pattern. 

Bibio is not a water living insect, but while their swarming, a lot of them crash lands in the water and that gives a h... of good fishing.
