The M&M Sakasa Kebari Style

M&M Tenkara



As an addition to our Tenkara Project, we decided to look for a pattern in the box that would lend itself well to the Tenkara style of tying. I chose the M&M, because of the wide range of success it enjoys. With a few tweaks to adapt the materials, and a glint of individual style, the M&M Ten came about. Hopefully, the spring will give us a chance to test it on some water. until then, enjoy the pattern, and if you get a chance to fish it before us, please post a report.
