Tenkara Fly Tying is Simple

We understand fly tying can be intimidating, as intimidating or more than fly-fishing itself. But, we believe fly-tying is simple.
Have you seen the video of Mr. Amano tying a tenkara fly without tools?
All you need is a hook, some thread, and a feather. Here’s a new page with several tenkara fly-tying videos and some instructions.

    Most commercially tied flies are too ornate and expensive. Sakasa kebari are buggy, easy to tie, and inexpensive. They’re much more practical and give the angler the freedom to entice fish with patterns they haven’t already seen 25 times that day.

    For years i tied lots of traditional western wet fly patterns and I was a frequent fly changer, The patterns all worked. The only
    frustrating part was finding the material required to tie a given
    pattern. Now I am free of all of that, I agree with Jason,sakasa
    kebari are buggy and easy to tie , and I am catching lots of fish,
    I notice that I now tie a lot more kebari and I am free to be more creative ……I love that!!!
