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 trip with the Suntech Field Master
(Sacramento Mountains, New Mexico)
Hi Chris. I just got back from taking the Suntech Field Master you sold me out for the first time. I went ten miles down the road from my house to the Peñasco River - a spring-fed creek (although anything that flows year-round here gets called a river) in Southern New Mexico. I was concerned that I was trespassing, so didn't stay very long, but in the short time I was there I landed a beautiful 11-inch wild Brown on my version of the Utah Killer Bug. This was in spite of my lousy casting as I started learning how to cast for Tenkara. I think I'm hooked!
I'm especially stoked because when I got home, I called New Mexico Department of Game and Fish to ask about the conflicting signs that made me think I might be trespassing, and discovered that the licensed public has access to over a mile of the creek through an "open gate" policy. I thought it was only a few tenths of a mile! Moral of the story: Don't just rely on your Game and Fish department's website. Talk to someone in the know. I'd have never found out about the fishing boundaries from the website because it was buried in the hunting pages.
Next time, I'll stay longer and take the camera!

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.
