have gotten emails from several customers concerned that their packages
have been lost because they are late and/or tracking data shows them to
have been in the Jersey City sorting facility for days.
Those packages are now moving. Most have been delivered already.
understand that shopping online this year has been unprecedented, and the
USPS, UPS and FedEx are trying to run beyond their capacity. In the 10
years I have been shipping packages, (thousands and thousands of
packages), the USPS has NEVER lost a Priority Mail package, and has lost
only two or three First Class packages. Please be patient. Your
packages will arrive.
Kieryu with tenkara rod
I know this is not true keiryu fishing but I think this counts as keiryu fishing. My setup was simple, a Shimosuke tenkara 3.3, 6ft of 14 lb Berkley Vanish fluorocarbon, 3ft of 1.8 lb 8x tippet,a small float and a very small split shot couple inches above the size 12 long shank hook with a small piece of eastern sea garfish for bait. Not long after that I caught a juvenile sea mullet around 3". The second fish was a yellowfin bream but it busted me off, but I caught 4 yellowfin bream afterwards in the 5-8" range, all the bream put up a fun fight.

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.
