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, but I do not know when I will mail packages again.
Most international flights have been cancelled, so there is no ETA for out-of-stock items that come from Japan.
Like a kid in a candy store
I received some micro gear from Chris today. I couldn't wait to try it out so off to the local pond I went. My new Nissin Air stage 190 is pure delight. It's not only beautifully finished but it's sensitive enough to play micros and tough enough to land bluegills. I caught some of each. I tied a single strand knot of black killer bug around a few of the new Owner Half Moon Tanago hooks and trimmed the excess yarn forming a little ball. The fish thought it was a little bug of some sort. I also got to use my new micro photo tank. It provides a nice photo format for identification and keeps the little critters in water to be safely released. I'm stoked! Some guy pointed out a 20" Rainbow for me to target. I said no thanks, I'm going tiny. He just shook his head and walked away. Thanks Chris. Micro fishing's a hoot!

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.
