Tenkara flies (aka. tenkara kebari) place less emphasis on imitation and more on presentation. They reflect a tenkara philosophy of relying on technique instead of gear.
Most Japanese tenkara anglers only use one fly pattern, each one having his favorite one. We only offer 4 tenkara fly patterns, which we learned from our teachers or designed ourselves, and which are effective in a variety of waters and regions and offer motion under water.
