Please Note: PayPal is having a problem with the Handling Charge, which should be $4 for every order. For some reason, a few orders are not getting the charge. I have contacted PayPal, but until the problem is corrected I will send a PayPal invoice following any order that does not reflect the $4 handling charge.

When you place your order, please look at the PayPal shopping cart contents to see if the $4 Handling charge is included. If not, please click on the button below. That will make a separate PayPal invoice unnecessary (saving time for both of us).

Handling charge - $4

TenkaraBum No Vise Challenge - First Timer

My ugly little fly.

My ugly little fly.

My ugly little fly. I forgot to leave the fly in this beauty for the picture.

I used a bait-type hook for this fly with the barb crushed and the filed a little. The hackle is Hungarian partridge and the thread is just some dark brown standard sewing thread. I only caught 6 little sunfish on this fly since the wind was horrible that day (although I did great on a keiryu rig) the biggest barely hitting 4 inches. But still a great day!
