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.
Nissin Pro Spec 320 7:3
I live on a ranch with a small creek here in Colorado and the Nissin Pro Spec 320 7:3 works wonders in the tight casting lanes. There are a few spots on the creek that are open and the full 3.2m length is nice, but it is the tighter areas that the shorter 2.7m length lets this rod truly shine. The best part is the rod's ability to handle the 8-12" Brown and Brook trout that call this creek home. I managed to subdue a 14" Brown trout with this rod and still had some power in reserve if needed.
I could not be happier with my purchase. I cannot wait to use it on some other small mountain streams hunting for wild Cutthroat and Brookies. It will also make a great loaner rod for my friends who might want to try out Tenkara.

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.
