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. Next shipments tentatively scheduled for Wednesday, April 8 (rain in the forecast).

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


Killer bug strikes again!

by Bruce Wagner
(Baltimore, Maryland)

Had a chance to get out this morning to a beautiful little local river, "the Little Patuxent." Hooked and landed a few "stocker" rainbows on my new Suntech Keiryu Special 44. I really like the long rod, short line method Chris talks about on here, I suggest everyone give it a try if you have the chance. It really helps with strike detection and keeping a nice drift going. Not to mention helping out with landing the fish...thanks Chris, once again your experience and knowledge have helped out!

"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
