I've recently developed a keen interest in Tenkara. Allow me to say that I've lived in Colorado for a couple of years and I am aware that an individual can use a larger variety of fly styles other than those labeled Tenkara.

Here's my question, I'd really like to tie a minimalist mayfly & caddis imitation for fishing waters like the Frying Pan. I"d like for it to be a simple pattern where a hook size or color scheme variation can be quickly altered at the vise.

I was thinking of a simple tail of spade hackle, dubbed body and collar of wound hackle.

Any thoughts or suggestions?
