Covid-19 Announcement

Most international flights have been cancelled.

There is no ETA for out-of-stock items that come from Japan.

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

Kurenai works well!

by Martin

I bought the Kurenai HM33R for my wife while at the Sowbug Roundup in Mountain Home, AR from Chris. We were in Wisconsin last week fishing off a small dock on the south side of Lake Mason. She wanted to test her new Tenkara rod and caught this Golden Smelt with a grey killer bug I made. She caught a bunch of bluegill and one looked like 13" large mouth bass with the Kurenai and killer bug combo in about a hour and a half fishing. I obviously won't be able to wrestle this rod from her. It has great action and is very light so is not tiring like her regular fly rod.

Maybe I should sell them in pairs (his 'n' hers).

My wife let me use it and I caught several bluegills with it. You may be onto a good idea about his/hers. Come up with with a package deal!

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.
