Covid-19 Announcement

TenkaraBum.com is located in New York City, which is essentially locked down.

Package pickup has been suspended. My neighborhood post office is closed. I go outside as little as possible because I am in an "at risk" group.

TenkaraBum.com is still open, for now. Next shipments tentatively scheduled for Wednesday, April 8 (rain in the forecast).

Most international flights have been cancelled, so there is no ETA for out-of-stock items that come from Japan.


13 April 2013 - Before the tree ate the Red Tailed Blue Killer Bug

Saturday Bluegill #1

Saturday Bluegill #1

Got another three Bluegill before I caught a tree. I feel like I am cheating by nailing Bluegill (I ended up catching over 20 today - but on different flies), so I'll post the non-Bluegill fish I catch with a blue fly, and still post Bluegill but only if caught on a newly tied, different style blue yarn based fly. I read the rules so this is strictly voluntary on my part (and partly to make sure I don't take a 1000 pictures this year of bluegills).

“The bitterness of poor quality remains long after the sweetness of low price is forgotten” – Benjamin Franklin

"Be sure in casting, that your fly fall first into the water, for if the line fall first, it scares or frightens the fish..." Col. Robert Venables 1662

As age slows my pace, I will become more like the heron.


Warning:

The hooks are sharp.
The coffee's hot.
The fish are slippery when wet.

Beware of the Dogma
