have gotten emails from several customers concerned that their packages
have been lost because they are late and/or tracking data shows them to
have been in the Jersey City sorting facility for days.
Those packages are now moving. Most have been delivered already.
understand that shopping online this year has been unprecedented, and the
USPS, UPS and FedEx are trying to run beyond their capacity. In the 10
years I have been shipping packages, (thousands and thousands of
packages), the USPS has NEVER lost a Priority Mail package, and has lost
only two or three First Class packages. Please be patient. Your
packages will arrive.
Father and Son First Tenkara Nymphing
(White River Mountain home Arkansas)
We got our first taste of tenkara fishing with a TenBum 36 last summer on the frying pan in CO. Perfect drag free drifts tripled our catch rate on dry flies. Last weekend on the White river in Arkansas, we finally got to try nymph fishing with our Tenkara rods. We had a blast. I love the bend that we get in our rods even with average fish. We used an airlock indicator and two nymphs- a y2k bug and a ruby midge. The Ruby Midge slayed them. We caught so many that onlooking fishermen began to ask us "What are you catching them on?" Part of our success was due to the flies, but a big part was the great drifts that we got using our Tenkara equipment. It's going to be hard to go back to using a western rod.

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.
