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.
Patagonia Wader Work Station
by Mark Roberts
My two favorite packs for fly fishing are both by Patagonia. Their design team has long been one of the finest in the industry due to their i the out of doors experience.
Their Patagonia Wader Work Station is no exception. When I don't need to be carrying a jacket, water, or lunch, it excels. Everything is where you need it, and nothing more.
It is loaded with highy well thought out features and I expect it to be copied shortly by the industry. Four zippered pockets. Two stretch mesh pockets for tippet spools, one main body pocket, and one rear pocket large enough for a large modern cell phone and keys. Two Zinger attachment tabs, a Velcro removable foam fly pad, and two hemostat holsters.
It is intended for attaching to wader straps. I instead add my own length of 1/2" wide thin webbing to make it an over the shoulder sling pack.
I urge you to check it out. You won't believe how affordable it is, matched with the design, materials, production, and Patagonia's warranty.

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.
