I have gotten emails from several customers concerned that their packages have been lost because they are late and/or tracking data shows them to have been in the Jersey City sorting facility for days.

Those packages are now moving. Most have been delivered already.

Please understand that shopping online this year has been unprecedented, and the USPS, UPS and FedEx are trying to run beyond their capacity. In the 10 years I have been shipping packages, (thousands and thousands of packages), the USPS has NEVER lost a Priority Mail package, and has lost only two or three First Class packages. Please be patient. Your packages will arrive.

Microfishing YouTube channel

by Alton

I just wanted to share a excellent channel I found while browsing on YouTube. The channel is Easy Fishing and is hosted by an English gentleman that explains fishing with a whip (fixed line rod).

He catches chubs, dace, roach, (and many other species we would consider micros) in English waterways. He explains bait, chumming, worms, fishing with bread (many tricks and techniques I didn't know that help keep bread on the hook and catch fish), plumbing the depth to ensure your bait is where the fish are most likely to be, float fishing and how to place shot to maximize float effectiveness (can be in depth, but very informative, the Brits love their float fishing and make a science out of it).

The channel is geared toward beginner fisherman, but it is packed with information and much of it deals with micro fishing, although that is not what they call it across the pond. Give it a view and you might learn something.

I wish Chris carried bread punches, so I could give them a try.

Tight lines. Alton

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.
