one of eighteen on my Killer Kabari

I bought some gear from tenkara bum and Chris send me this blue yarn. I'm like what is this. I didn't order yarn. So I read the thing about the blue challenge and I tie one of Chris's killer karbari with the blue yarn. I was really hot over the weekend using a foam spider at my local pond over the weekend, I tried it today, and go a few hits. So I look in my fly box and see the blue fly. I think what the hey. Might as well try it. So it put it on and Catch 19, yes 19 fish. I only have 18 pict because one fell on the ground back into the water before I could take a picture. I came back home and then I read I have to post a picture of the fly. Well, here it is, all used up, but a great fly. Here are the rest of the fish I caught.

“The bitterness of poor quality remains long after the sweetness of low price is forgotten” – Benjamin Franklin

"Be sure in casting, that your fly fall first into the water, for if the line fall first, it scares or frightens the fish..." Col. Robert Venables 1662

As age slows my pace, I will become more like the heron.


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