Adams Ishigaki Kebari

adams-step-7This kebari as a blend of the Western Adams and the Ishigaki Kebari.   It uses the same gray/grizzly as Dr. Ishigaki but adds a dubbed body to add to floatation for use on the surface.  I use this as a dry fly but also fish it ‘damp’ and it works especially well swinging across current in the surface film or just under the surface.

Materials

Hook:   #14-16, dry fly
Thread: Gray 6/0
Hackle: Grizzly Dry Fly
Body:   Muskrat or Adams Dubbing
