Oki™ Kebari (size 8, 3 flies)
Many tenkara anglers in Japan favor larger tenkara flies, even for trout in mountain streams. With faster flowing waters, larger flies give fish a good opportunity to see it and the potential high calorie intake is too much for them to resist.
Particularly effective in fast water, or when the bugs are bigger, this size of tenkara fly should be in every tenkara angler's fly box. The Oki Kebari (literally "Big Fly") is a pattern developed by Tenkara USA® founder, Daniel Galhardo. It combines several attributes from tenkara flies he's learned from different teachers: larger size, soft hackle and peacock herl collar on a barbless hook. The forward-facing hackle also ensures a very lively fly underwater. This tenkara fly can be a very effective "secret weapon".
Size 8. Three flies in vial.
All Tenkara USA® flies are tied on barbless hooks.

The flies that I ordered were high quality and came in this sweet glass vile with cork stopper. I have to say that that was a very nice touch. Will be ordering again.
The lines, flyies and service are the best. The videos, from tying knots to Japanese Tenkara fishing, are very good and educational.
Well built. Work really well in the CO.
Very good craftsmanship on these flies. Prompt and good service!
This will be my first season fishing with a tenkara rod. Look forward to it. I am sure it will fun and a learn as you go experience.
