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.
First time Tenkara newbie
by Robert Rotolo
I purchased the Kurenai HM33R. After attaching level line, tippet, some fly I had for years, went to a local pond to try it out. I was catching sunfish and bluegills with every cast. So off to the local trout stream, after several casts, a trout took the fly, I was not ready and did not react quickly enough, so Monster fish in question spit it out.
Now I need to practice getting my response time down.
Any way, it was a ball.
The rod was so light it was a pleasure casting sideways, to avoid overhanging fly eating trees.

"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.
