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.
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.
Name Your Kebari
by Les Albjerg
Caught on Keeper Kebari
TenkaraBum to me is not only about the gear, but also about pushing the envelope. That said, Tenkara traditionally is about a fixed line rod, a basic line, and a kebari. So, I would love to hear from the readers what kebari you like to fish and why.
I will begin. The kebari I most often fish with is the Keeper Kebari. I have tied it on hooks from size 6 to 8. One of my favorite hooks has been a size 7 carp hook that I bought on sale from England. I have used black and peacock yarn. The trout seem to almost always just slam this fly. I have had very few subtle takes. It has been a great smallmouth bass fly. It is the fly I caught my first carp on.
So, name your Kebari!

"Be sure in casting, that your fly fall first into the water, for if the line fall first, it scares or frightens the fish..." -

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.
