  2. Demonstration on how to tie a tenkara (Japanese fly fishing) sakasa kebari (reverse-hackle tenkara fly).

  3. Fly-tying instructions for a tenkara fly. Tenkara is the traditional Japanese method of mountain stream fly-fishing. In faster flowing streams fish have little time to observe their food and a general pattern can be used. This is the only fly pattern I ever use.
