In Brent's Words
"I can't claim being the creator of the Royal Wolf Kebari as I have seen it tied once or twice in social media posts in the past but there is nothing I can find referenced online. The back body is based off a traditional Royal Wolf fly but the rest of the fly is just a sakasa kebari. I have seen some flies out of Japan that have this similar segmentation with peacock in the body as well so the idea is not new to tenkara but maybe to American tenkara anglers.
It has become go to fly for me about 4 years ago for the fall season in small creeks, especially for brook trout. I was striking out big time with my regular go to kebari and I switched to this red kebari and the day totally changed. There seems to be something magical about a red body with the incorporation of peacock at the thorax and tail end of the body, it always works for me in the fall especially since that day. It works times of the year as well. It is a fun simple tie and the added peacock gives you a slightly different profile to present to fish when the traditional simple sakasa is not triggering the fish. "
How to Fish This Fly
This is a simple effective soft hackle tenkara fly that should work good especially for trout in mountain creeks & streams. This fly is meant to be fished as a wet fly (sub-surface)
