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, but I do not know when I will mail packages again.
Most international flights have been cancelled, so there is no ETA for out-of-stock items that come from Japan.
An Interesting Hackle
by Phillip Dobson
I recently picked up a couple ring-neck pheasant neck-rings as a substitute for exotic feathers on salmon flies. It turns out that the feathers are also awesome for kebari.
The patches come dyed a few different colors or natural. One of the best things is that the size of the feathers nicely correspond with what we usually use tenkara fishing. Lots of feathers and little waste. Give 'em a try!

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.
