Tenkara fly-tying, sakasa kebari

Demonstration on how to tie a tenkara sakasa kebari (reverse-hackle tenkara fly). This fly is tied on a large, size 8 hook. It is ideal for fishing mountain streams that are running a bit higher and you want to increase the visibility of the fly, or when you see larger bugs in the water. This is pretty much the only pattern I use, though I most often use flies in size 12. Fly-fishing for trout in mountain streams means that the fly used doesn't need intricate details, so, any fly with a size similar to bugs in the water and general bug shape, such as the sakasa fly, should work well as long as it is presented and manipulated properly.
