Tenkara fly fishing (literally “from heaven” or “from the skies”) is a traditional type of fly fishing practiced in Japan. It is primarily used for mountain stream trout fishing, and would work quite well on many of the North American creeks and streams. The flies traditionally used in tenkara are tied with thread, feathers and sometimes fur and many feature (as in the video) a reverse wet-fly hackle. In Japan the flies are known as “kebari”. You can find a selection of these kebari for purchase here at Tenkara Bum.
