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.
Ordering Replacement Parts
This page has been moved.
Before giving you the link, though, I have to stress that I do not carry and cannot get parts for
Any spinning rod
Any bait casting rod
Any fly rod
Any surf rod
Any boat rod
Any rod sold by:
Any European tenkara rod company
Any tenkara company that popped up within the last few weeks that I haven't heard of yet.
The only parts I can get are parts for tenkara rods, keiryu rods and seiryu rods that are made for the Japanese domestic market and sold in Japan.
For spinning and casting rods bought outside of Japan, I would recommend:
For tenkara, keiryu or seiryu rod parts for rods sold on TenkaraBum.com. the link is: https://www.tenkarabum.com/replacement-parts.html
“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.
