Takayama™ Kebari (size 16, 3 flies)
The Takayama Sakasa Kebari is the tenkara fly that completes our set of 4 flies. Offered in size 16, it's our smallest tenkara fly.
Unlike in Western fly fishing, where a lot of people believe a super small fly is necessary, tenkara anglers hardly ever go any smaller than a size 16 for their fly. The size 16 fly will be handy for those days when a fish is rising to the fly but not taking it, or in waters with a little more pressure and pickier fish
Size 16. 3 Flies.

I loved these flies, they worked well for smaller brown trout and creek chubs in my area in PA. Some times I would be using a bigger fly in a spot and then when I switched to this smaller fly I would get more strikes. It’s definitely wise to have some smaller kebari’s in your fly box for those fish that reject your bigger kebari’s.
My favorite one of all.
If I am not using the Ishikagi fly I am using this one. It never disappoints.
I live in Montana and enjoy using this style of fly to fish in smaller streams. The subtle action the fly has when slowly drifted is fantastic. Even a slow upstream "twitch" works well too. A must have fly pattern to have in the box.
I purchased these while visiting a friend in Maine! Loved seeing TUSA product in a store from on the east coast. Kittery Trading Post is amazing...but even more amazing for having these killer flies !!! Ive probably caught a dozen natives with these in the last few outings ive had while fall fishing :)
