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. is still open, for now, but I do not know when I will mail packages again.

First Time Tenkara

Stocked Rainbow

Stocked Rainbow

I had just received my Dragontail Tatsu the day before and my local park lake had just had one of its "kid fishing days". With one of the coves netted off and about 1200 pounds of rainbow trout I thought I'd join in on the turkey shoot while the fish were still swimming. I went down with my new rod. After losing 2 of the flies that came with the rod I caught the next 14 fish on a red zebra kebari in about 2 and a half hours. The most fun I've had in ages.

“The bitterness of poor quality remains long after the sweetness of low price is forgotten” – Benjamin Franklin

"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.
