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.

I've bought 5 rods from you, ranging from a big old Nissin 450 ZX stiff down to a Suntech Kurenai 30R, and the latter has become my new favorite rod. I have been catching sunfish and crappie on this rod with a #3 level line, 7x tippet and a tiny pink San Juan worm. I just cast it out and let it slowly sink and I can literally feel the lightest tap with this rod. I haven't had this much fun fishing for a long time. Even a 4-inch green sunfish is exciting to play on this rod!

"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.
The hooks are sharp.
The coffee's hot.
The fish are slippery when wet.
