Dreamy Ray and oh, so beautiful! Your Tenkara patterns are to die for! It is time to get out my Tenkara rod and go a-fishin'! Thanks for the inspiration!

Don't know how to say "Perfection" in Japanese, but this fly is it.
In ancient times, cats were worshipped as gods; they have not forgotten this.

Catskiller9 ~ "Kebari" and "Tenkara" are words associated with a type/style of soft hackle fly traditionally used for fishing in small, swift streams in Japan. Hence the reference to "Japanese" in my comment about Letumgo's fly. Nothing profound here -- I was simply trying to avoid the same-old, same-old way to express my admiration for the design and execution of this unique pattern.

Now, as a cat lover I would ask that you elaborate on your screen name ;) :lol: .

Ray,

I love the pattern! 8-)

Do the hi vis fiber splay back against the hackle in current or on a retrieve?

Dreamy, Ray.
