The flies are just flies. They work no better than western flies. I use western flies, dry, wet s/h's and nymphs. The reverse hackle gives the fly a lot of action as you are retrieving the fly. It works the same as a standard soft hackle. Most Kebari flies are tyed on hook sizes about 6 and 8.
The original flies were tyed with plain thread and hen hackle, very simply.
