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, but I do not know when I will mail packages again.
Most international flights have been cancelled, so there is no ETA for out-of-stock items that come from Japan.
Nissin Zerosum 360 7:3
by Jeff Roberts
The Zerosum rods are classic JDM quality. True tenkara rods and absolutely the Crown Jewels in my rod collection. These have it all, light, sensitive, precise casting. Expensive, yes, but you get every bit of performance you expect for the price. I have landed many small bass and sunfish on the rod so far. If I had to choose one favorite rod (hopefully that never happens) the Zerosums take the cake.
“The bitterness of poor quality remains long after the sweetness of low price is forgotten” – Benjamin Franklin
"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.
