The Ishigaki Kebari are the flies used by renowned tenkara angler, and leading authority on tenkara in Japan, Dr. Hisao Ishigaki. For the last 10 years, Dr. Ishigaki has used this one pattern exclusively allowing only for small variations of color, sizes and perhaps hackle style the main combinations of which are available in each vial and has continued catching as many fish as he ever did. The Ishigaki Kebari Ishigaki fly fully embodies the simple spirit of tenkara fly fishing. In tenkara, more emphasis is placed on the technique of the angler, not on the gear he uses. Tankara has taken their turns at fishing this one fly exclusively as well. On faster mountain streams, they agree with the one fly principle, and the flies worked like a charm. The flies can be used as dry flies by false casting to dry the fly particularly the one with stiffer brown hackle, emergers by casting slightly upstream, like soft hackle wet flies by casting further upstream and letting it sink, and by imparting it life in calm water by twitching its reverse hackle.
