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. I plan to go to a post
office on the morning of April 3 because rain is forecast. Next rainy
day is forecast for Tuesday or Wednesday of next week.
Most international flights have been cancelled, so there is no ETA for out-of-stock items that come from Japan.
Nissin Pro Square 320 6:4 Rod
The Pro Square 320 6:4 is one of my first higher end style tenkara rod.
I really like the fact you can feel the rod load even with lighter 3.5 line and it throws a light/ultralight furled leader great as well.
I have not had a chance to drive out to any blue ridge mountain streams for trout to the west of where I live in Virginia, but I did get out to a local stream to test the rod out to see how it casts.
So light and well balanced, great rod!
Also I found several fallfish/chubs (6 to 11 inch range) that were feeding on the surface. I had a blast fishing a small caddis pattern, size 14.
All the fallfish put a nice bend in the Pro Square 320, especially, the 9 to 10 inch sized fish I hooked.
Hopefully, I will remember my camera next time to add some photos and some new catch data.

"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.
