Mr. Yoshida ties a Kenbane tenkara fly

Mr. Yoshida ties a Kenbane tenkara fly

Mr. Takashi Yoshida is an innovative fly tyer based in Japan. Here he shows how to tie a tenkara fly using the Alula feather of a pheasant, known in Japanese as the kenbane. The kenbane (alula) is a very small stiff feather, and most anglers may not know a good way to use one. This feather makes a very stiff-hackled fly that can be very effective in fast mountain streams.
