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.
First time and lovin' it
(Greenfield, Indiana USA)
First, thank you for selling the equipment/tackle that you do. I received the Nissin Sasuke 5ft rod and it is fantastic. Within thirty minutes I was at the small ditch that runs down the side of the property. I have always seen small fish in it and you sold me the equipment to hook them. I had a 2LB tippet with a #20 fly hook and a Owner float. I used pieces of baloney and they loved it. For my line I used 4LB fire line. They say it is a 1LB diameter, looks a little bigger than that but it seemed to work well.

"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.
