Well tenkara fly swap number 5 has been completed and I just received my flies yesterday and once again they did not disappoint. I must say there are some very talented fly tiers out there and just want to congratulate everyone on a job well done. The theme for this swap was to tie a tenkara interpretation of a classic western fly. This swap was a little smaller than previous swaps but I think it worked out well because everyone tied two of their fly contributions, one to fish and one to put in a fly library if desired. I would also like to thank Acheateaux (user name on the TenkaraUSA forum) for hosting the swap. So without further delay below is a list of the swapped flies with their TenkaraUSA usernames and the name of the classic western fly that was interpreted through tenkara.
