Most international flights have been cancelled.

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

Keiryu ZPRO

by Roy Davison
(Prescott Valley, AZ)

This is a late story submission, it was from April 20.
I received the Suntech Keiryu ZPRO 53 about a week before my birthday (April 20) so I made myself wait to use it. I took it to my favorite nearby sunfish lake to test it out. When I got to the lake I tied on my line and very quickly realized that I had accidentally set up a 4 meter line before leaving for the lake, but decided to use it anyways; and boy was it a blast! The extremely short line line coupled with a magnificent Suntech rod offered unparalleled sensitivity; so much so that I could even feel SOME of the sideways pulls that the sunfish were fond of. Now, I wouldnt fish with that short of a line on the ZPRO if I was expecting large fish, but its wonderful for panfish. This was also my first time using snelled keiryu hooks, and I was pleasantly surprised by the ease of tying the knot, and the way that being eyeless allowed me to slip the half-worm further up the line.
It was a many day, I caught about 30 sunfish until I needed to get home to get ready for work. So all-in-all a good day!

P.S. I'll be very happy if anybody can identify this lake, and even happier if you can tell me what movie it was in.

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.
