Although I mostly fish now, every once in a while, I rediscover a pattern from my pre-tenkara days that I think is perfect for tenkara in its ethos. I recently remembered a somewhat esoteric one I used to consider a staple when I was only western fly fishing: the FC Crackleback.
Below is a select of flies I tie for fly fishing the Tuckaseegee River, the western NC Fly Fishing Trail and the Great Smoky Mountain National Park and other wild trout streams. I will be adding more flies as I can find time off the water. Just click on the name of the fly that you want to tie and it will take you to my gallery on You Tube for that fly. Let me know if you would like me to add any specific flies that I have not done yet. Most of the flies that I will mainly illustrate flies that take from 2-5 minutes each. Enjoy!
