Covid-19 Announcement

Most international flights have been cancelled.

There is no ETA for out-of-stock items that come from Japan.

Shipments to overseas buyers will take longer than normal - possibly much longer. Patience is a virtue - especially in fishing.

Fun Video I Made

by Jimi Fly
(Warrensburg, MO)

I've been making fishing videos on You Tube for a a couple months now. This morning I went down to my local lake in some flip flops with a cup of coffee. I brought my Honryu 380 with the #4 Orange line and one beat up killer bug. I ended up catching around 20 or so but my camera died at the 5th fish. I really like finding a spot and then just squatting down and hauling some fish in. I think this is a great way to slow down your casting stroke and it makes it easier to see subtle strikes on your line. I don't want to toot my own horn but I do think this video illustrates a different view of what Tenkara can be. Hope you like it!

Can't tell you how much I wish I could do that. Get up, get a big cup of coffee and go catch some fish.

Little known fact: fish slime has wonderful properties. A little fresh fish slime applied to the hands will reduce your blood pressure.

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.
