I headed back to my favorite river for an afternoon's fishing last Friday. Runoff and rain started to slowly kick-in and flows were higher than during my last outing, but still below the historical average. I guess more snow and rain is waiting ...
Anyway, Friday was one of those days where you couldn't do anything wrong, they would hit almost anything. I only fished with Tenkarabum's Killer Kebari, dead-drift, swing & twitch and it all worked beautifully. I also broke in the new hand-tied tapered fluorocarbon line of Tenkarabum which is to me the best compromise between a traditional furled and level line. I will be giving this line more thought and testing over the next few weeks, I have high hopes.

See for yourself:
One note: the fly referred to in the video is not (Sawyer's) Killer Bug but the Killer Kebari, a variation tied by Chris Stewart of Tenkarabum.
We had a blast doing this video and I am looking forward to our next outing, hopefully to Rocky Mountain National Park.
Tight Lines and get out there and fish.
