Tenkara Fly Swap II

The second Tenkara USA fly swap has now been completed and I thought I would post pics of all the great flies that were exchanged in this go around.  I have included the Tenkara USA usernames to identify the flies pictured below.  I would like to thank Daniel Galhardo of Tenkara USA for hosting this swap, it was alot of fun to do again. I would also like to thank all the participants, these are some really cool flies.

  1. I have never tried tying these style of flies but I need too!

  2. If you have ever tried a soft hackle wet before, it's somewhat similar. The big exception is that you can give more life to your fly with subtle twitches. The hackle will open and close when intended and not at the whim of the current. The majority of the time I will use this type of fly.

  3. Those are some fine flies.
    I'm glad I wouldn't have to be a judge.
    Well done.
