|Mallard Sakasa Kebari|
I tie a fair number of flies for sale, swaps, and friends. Sometimes I just like to tie fun little diversions like this fly I call a Mallard Sakasa Kebari. It reminds me of a mallard duck with it's grey body color, green head, and purple patch like on it's wings. I don't know how well it will fish or if I will even cast it to a rising trout but it seems with all that is going on in this world we can use all of the little distractions we can get. Recipe is below for anyone interested.
