Some Information And A Couple Of Flies
When I got my Tiny Tenkara the line options were a level line which felt like monofilament or a piece of old fly line. I tried the monofilament and did not care for it. The piece of fly line worked well and I could see myself using this with out trying something else. Well I found something else and first impressions are that this is a great alternative. A ClearStream furled leader. As you can see from the label on the packet it is a perfect length for Tiny Tenkara. It has a loop for easy attachment, and a tippet ring for attaching your tippet. The color is a bit difficult to see on the water, so perhaps another color would be better. They come in various colors and weights and lengths. They cost 7.95 and that includes free shipping.
The Morning Caddis...a good imitation for a couple of stages of caddis. Hook, a curved hopper, size 12...Body, orange dubbing, gold ribbing..head natural fox squirrel.
The Pheasant and Squirrel...Tail and body is natural pheasant tail with a copper wire rib. The hackle is natural fox squirrel, with a brass bead.
