This has been a very difficult year to manage inventory. Stocks of many items are lower than I would like at this time of year. If you are shopping for a Christmas gift, please do not wait until the last minute. There is a good chance your items will be out of stock if you wait.


hook finishes?

I've been fishing a lot this year with a 270 Seiryu rod and a barbless hook and salmon egg. With the smallest 1/4" strike indicator everything is lip hooked and an easy release.

But after a bunch of trout they get spookier and I have to remove the indicator. At that point I start hooking a few deeper in the mouth.

What is everyone's feelings about using black nickel etc. finishes. Think they still desolve in the fishes digestive juices?

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.
