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. Next shipments tentatively scheduled for Wednesday, April 8 (rain in the forecast).
Most international flights have been cancelled, so there is no ETA for out-of-stock items that come from Japan.
Newbie looking for advice.
Full disclaimer. When I say newbie I mean never even held a Tenkara rod, but excited and willing to learn.
I live in Alaska and I'm trying to find the right rod for the different types of fishing I enjoy. I have a two week camping/fishing trip planned in July and would love use a new rod on my trip. This trip will be focused on arctic grayling, trout and red salmon.
I've narrowed down my selection to the TB36 and the TB Traveler. I like the option of being able to adjust the length of the pole. There is a stream a mile away from my house that is pretty narrow and lots of trees and thought the traveler might do better in tight spaces.
Can either or both of these rods handle 10 lb reds in medium to fast moving water? Is either rod better than the other? Anyone have or used both?

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.
