For every reverse-hackle tenkara fly you tie tomorrow and the day after (September 21-22nd MST) and share a picture with us on our Facebook page or Twitter (with the hashtags #tenkarausa #tenkara4COflood) we’ll donate $1 to help flood victims in Colorado. If you make a short video of yourself tying the fly, we’ll donate $5 per video. No limits on how many flies you can tie and share pictures of.
If you don’t have a Facebook account or Twitter account, please get one and connect with us for this initiative as that will allow us to keep track of the activity. You don’t have to even send the fly anywhere, it’s yours to keep, but we do ask that the flies be tied tomorrow or Sunday.
Never tied a fly before? Don’t have a vise? No worries. Tenkara flies are very easy to tie. You just need a hook, sewing thread, and feathers (even a pillow’s feather can work). Watch these tenkara fly tying videos for some inspiration:

What’s the name of the music you are using?
