KEBARI

Tenkara is a very liberal community about the choice of flies but as I am an "old school" pattern user

I think it is more interesting to offer only the patterns I am used to fish with. As you will see it is mainly traditional Japanese patterns or patterns developed from Japanese teachings. Give these traditional kebari a try and you will understand why I like them so much.  All the kebari offered on this site are tied in Normandy, France.


Banshu kebari

The Banshu Kebari is an excellent choice for upstream wet fly fishing as well as cross current drift. Its backward oriented soft hackle makes it easy to sink and gives it a lifelike appearance when wet and that is what often makes the difference when fishes are not very active. The Banshu Kebari is famous in Japan for fishing iwana, a salmonid known for its very little mobility. Our Banshu Kebari is tied on a 号8 barbless hook (which equals a european size 12).

Takayama Sakasa kebari

The Takayama sakasa kebari was created by commercial tenkara anglers of the Takayama valley, in the Gifu Prefecture. This is the iconic pattern of tenkara with its reverse hackle and the red silk eye. I can not imagine not having a handful of these in my box! I like tying this pattern on Owner Shinobi hooks.

Zenmai Dou

This traditional tenkara pattern is made of zenmai, fiddle fern fibers, and it is an amazingly effective kebari on any water. Perhaps is it due to the transparency effect of the zenmai fibers when wet. We follow the tradition with tying this pattern on golden Kanta hooks made by Maruto.

Yamato kebari

The Yamato kebari is a very versatile pattern which is basically a wet fly for sight fishing as its light coloured body and contrasting rusty orange head makes it very easy to spot under the water surface. As it is an unweighted kebari one can also use it as a dry fly. Try this kebari and I have no doubt that after you will always carry a few in your flybox! Tied on Tiemco 3769SP-BL barbless hook size 12.
