Thanksgiving Sale has held a Black Friday / Cyber Monday sale most years, but it has usually been pretty limited. This year I have decided to have a Thanksgiving Sale - giving thanks to everyone who has helped make successful over the years.

From Wednesday, Nov. 24, through Tuesday, November 30, all rods will be 15% off. Tenkara, keiryu, seiryu, tanago - every one. The price shown on the page is before the discount. Click the "Add to cart" button to see the sale price. The sale price will be good only for rods that are in stock while the sale is on.

Camo Tippet Fly Pouch

Tippet Fly Pouch with added buckle

I've made some field modifications to the Tippet Fly Pouch I bought from you last year. I've modified the strap system by adding a small buckle. The buckle allows the pouch to be taken on and off easily, without pulling it over your head, or removing your hat. The nice thing was finding a way of forming loops with the extra strap material, which formed perfect holders for tippet spools.

I then took a set of Sharpie markers to the outside, to tone down the bright front section. I wanted a digital camo look, in hopes it will be less visible to fish.

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.
