Covid-19 Announcement

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, but I do not know when I will mail packages again.

Most international flights have been cancelled, so there is no ETA for out-of-stock items that come from Japan.

“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
