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.
1st Trout on New Daiwa Sagiri 45MC
by Rob R.
(Wichita Falls, TX)
I received this rod a few weeks ago and went out to a local tailrace which is stocked in the winter months with trout. Excellent rod for it's length, 4.5 meters, and it weighs less than 2.5 ounces. Handled the trout I was catching with ease and casting a 3.5 level line was just as easy.
“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.
The hooks are sharp.
The coffee's hot.
The fish are slippery when wet.
