Beadhead Copper Kebari

After returning from the International Fly Tying Symposium yesterday, I felt inspired to tie - and use my new bobbin (more on the bobbin & the show in tomorrow's post).

Anyway, this is my interpretation of a tenkara Sakasa Kebari fly, all beadheaded out, because beadhead nymphs are how I find most of my success locally.  I had always wanted to tie one like this, and I consider the design is a branch off the evolutionary tree showed off by Laurent Marshall over at his Tenkara Adventurer blog earlier this year.

  2. Sweet! It's similar to a soft-hackle, no? But on steroids! And with a copper wire body. And a bead. OK, it's nothing like a soft hackle. ;)
