Karp Kebari

Chris - Thanks for sharing a quick report on your Maine trip. However, that chewed Keeper Kebari looks sick! I felt the need to show one that is ready for action! I tie Keeper Kebari on lighter hooks too, but would like to share a couple of pictures of what I am calling the Karp Kebari. I had two hooks break last year using standard size 6 3x hooks on carp using the standard Keeper Kebari. I switched to these carp hooks last summer and haven't broken a hook yet. I find this fly works well on smallies too! The Arma hooks are hard to get. So a good size 6-8x steelhead hook works well too. I am using TMC 200 hooks right now. Tie up a few and enjoy the battle!

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