The KBK at work…
The KBK fly caught on camera
The KBK fly pattern
The Killer Bug Kebari Tenkara fly pattern £5.00
Developed over a long time this fly has proven itself time and time again.
The technique is simple, on fast flows just let it ride, on slower water raise your tip and let it 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 film then let it dive again.
As far as your cast goes, you’ll need to be aware of the weighted hook it is slightly different than a normal fly but you’ll get use to it pretty quickly.
