I 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.

Please 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

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.

Return to Your Tenkara Stories.


“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.


Warning:

The hooks are sharp.
The coffee's hot.
The fish are slippery when wet.

Beware of the Dogma
