Thanksgiving Sale has held a Black Friday / Cyber Monday sale most years, but it has usually been pretty limited. This year I have decided to have a Thanksgiving Sale - giving thanks to everyone who has helped make successful over the years.

From Wednesday, Nov. 24, through Tuesday, November 30, all rods will be 15% off. Tenkara, keiryu, seiryu, tanago - every one. The price shown on the page is before the discount. Click the "Add to cart" button to see the sale price. The sale price will be good only for rods that are in stock while the sale is on.

 Micro Fishing Trip Reports

Micro Fishing Trip Reports highlight fishing trips that specifically target micros. Micros that are caught on trips for larger species will be reported here also. Although there has proven to be a lot of interest in micro fishing among my regular readers and among my tenkara customers, I have gotten some feedback suggesting that it might be better to separate the micro fishing reports and the tenkara fishing reports.

“The bitterness of poor quality remains long after the sweetness of low price is forgotten” - Benjamin Franklin

"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.
