Please Note: PayPal is having a problem with the Handling Charge, which should be $4 for every order. For some reason, a few orders are not getting the charge. I have contacted PayPal, but until the problem is corrected I will send a PayPal invoice following any order that does not reflect the $4 handling charge.

TenkaraBum No Vise Challenge - Old Hand

by Andrew B
(Waterloo, IA)

#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.

How many fish in total have you caught with the fly?

Sorry Chris, I didn't really count, although I should have because of the challenge rules. I imagine at least 6 or 7 other than the two photographed.
