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. Next shipments tentatively scheduled for Wednesday, April 8 (rain in the forecast).
Most international flights have been cancelled, so there is no ETA for out-of-stock items that come from Japan.
Flash and Wiggle
by Terry Farmer
I tried the new .4g Daiwa Fly Spoons this afternoon. Can't remember ever fishing with a spoon, much less with a fixed line rod. They work!! Tied on a silver spoon with a no slip loop knot. Cast my TB 40 and proceeded to walk around our local C&R pond. Got a nice 14" rainbow on in about 10 minutes. All that flash and wiggle has got to be pretty hard for any fish to ignore. These tiny spoons definitely earned a spot in my fly box. Thanks Chris!

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.
