More Glass Bead Kebari

Post by redsedge » Sat Nov 28, 2020 1:38 pm

Thought I'd jump in with one of my Futsu Kebaris as there seems to be a Tenkara thing going on here. :D

Lookin' good.
The hackle looks like it was tied in at the hook point with an open spiral to the bead, then collared.
Dubbing counter wrapped through it?

Thanks guys. I tie in the hackle by the stem 90 degrees to the shank immediately behind the bead; after wrapping the desired amount of hackle I tie off the waste end in open spirals wrapping as far down the hook as you'd like before breaking it off; I then wrap the dubbing (muskrat in this case) up to the wrapped hackle and use the tying thread to rib back down to the "tail" where I whip finish. You can allow as much of the tied off hackle to protrude through the dubbing as you want. This is a very fast and easy tie.

Did you come up with that idea about the hackle being wrapped down the shank, or is that a common thing tying flymps?

I'm also going to be sending you a PM soon. I saw something and I'd like to ask you a question.

I'm with Mike, I am soooo stealing this pattern. What size do you tie it in?

This is tied on a Firehole 316 #12, pretty much my go-to Kebari hook. I've tried tying them on a 14 but have not been impressed. Keep in mind that I fish these on mild to high gradient mountain streams.

I like the Firehole 316 as well. very versatile and wide gape, in fact I'm using more Firehole hooks is other styles these days.
