Fly Tying Tutorials - Simple Flies - Red Butt Kebari

And here is the 3rd instalment of my (not so new anymore) video series where I tie for you today a

Red Butt Kebari

This one is a favorite from my time fishing in Colorado. Not quite an Ishigaki, not quite a Sakasa Kebari either. The Brahma hen hackle is somewhere in between stiffer cock hackle and soft hackles like partridge or pheasant.

I tie this fly only in this color combination, a red butt and a black body.

1. Hook: Daiichi 1157, size 14 (or any hook of your preference)
2. Thread: Red Pearsalls Silk, Black 6/0 no brand thread
3. Hackle: Brahma Hen

That's all.

I hope you enjoy the video; let me know if you have any questions or feedback.
