It gets boring tying the same thing over and over. So, I decided that it was time I try to tie myself a Tenkara fly. I’ve been following a few people through Instagram, Facebook, and Twitter that post a few things about Tenkara. The person that most inspired me to tie up a Tenkara style fly was a fellow Blogger Mr. Troutrageous!
Size 14 hook, a feather – I didn’t look up what type of feather to use, so, I used a small grizzly hackle, hackle clip, and some thread.

While very simple to tie, this fly looks extremely effective for a number of species. The bluegill and small bass at a few of my local ponds and small creeks would kill this fly, especially, in the evening when the mosquito’s hatch. I’ll just have to toss this with my 3wt until I decide it’s time for a Tenkara rod.

  1. Will be awaiting some feedback on your Bluegill experiences. I have not fished Tenkara nor do I own any Tenkara gear. That being said, I think the flies would fish well in most any manner.

  2. I'm sure the bluegill will be all over this fly, just like they are with every other fly at my local ponds. They're easy to please.
