An Interesting Hackle
by Phillip Dobson
I recently picked up a couple ring-neck pheasant neck-rings as a substitute for exotic feathers on salmon flies. It turns out that the feathers are also awesome for kebari.
The patches come dyed a few different colors or natural. One of the best things is that the size of the feathers nicely correspond with what we usually use tenkara fishing. Lots of feathers and little waste. Give 'em a try!

The hooks are sharp.
The coffee's hot.
The fish are slippery when wet.
