The KBK caught on camera
Developed over a long time this Killer Bug Kebari Fly has proven itself time and time again. It simply works very well…
The technique while you will find is simple, it is good to know that on fast flows you can let it ride. On slower water allow yourself to raise your tip and let the KBK dive back down. Depending on the depth of the water you can let it hit the river bed then bring it back to just below the surface then let it dive again. As a result you should induce a take. Manipulation of this fly is incredibly easy and due to this it really is one of the best flies I have in my fly box, by far!
As far as your cast goes, you’ll need to be aware of the weighted hook. It is slightly different from a normal fly but consequently you’ll get use to it pretty quickly.
