TenkaraBum No Vise Challenge - Old Hand
by Andrew B
#12 Daiichi 1150, Partridge hackle, UKB yarn thorax, yellow tying thread. So, you could, perhaps, call this fly a Tups Spindrift Kebari (although to be a true Tups Indispensable it should have dun hen hackle). I only have photos of this little bluegill and 8-inch bass, but have also caught three species of sunfish and crappies with the same fly. The hackle is now nearly gone, but the yarn thorax keeps it looking buggy.

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