Tenkara Flies on Wednesdays!
How does that sound? Every Wednesday, as you find yourself looking forward to the coming weekend and still with a couple of days to tie new flies before you head out, you’ll now find a new tenkara fly tying video or post right here.
On our first week running the series, I’d like to show you a video I recorded over a year ago while visiting Japan. I have been meaning to share this video with you for a long time, and am very happy to finally get it done. This is a video of Mr. Takashi Yoshida, a well-known tenkara angler and fly tyer in Japan showing a unique tenkara fly using the alula feather of a pheasant, known in Japanese as the kenbane (you may visit his blog here, yoshidakebari.jugem.jp). The video is a nice follow up to yesterday’s post by Jason about using contrasting colors on tenkara flies, as you’ll notice Mr. Yoshida’s effective use of contrast in his fly. I hope you’ll enjoy it.
This video is 9:52 long, and is best watched at full resolution by clicking on the gear icon and selecting 720HD.
