Covid-19 Announcement

Most international flights have been cancelled.

There is no ETA for out-of-stock items that come from Japan.

Shipments to overseas buyers will take longer than normal - possibly much longer. Patience is a virtue - especially in fishing.

Perfect Way to Teach your Family How to ENJOY Fly Fishing

Chris -

I've sent you stories of me and my two kids fishing with the various rods I've found through you - we finally got my wife to cast some flies and she's HOOKED! My blog entry is linked below - please feel free to grab whatever pictures you are interested in for your website.

I would not have been able to plant the "I love fly fishing" seeds if it weren't for the simplicity and effectiveness of tenkara equipment.

Thanks as always!

Thanks Vic.

I took the shot of Big M's black crappie for the Soyokaze Gallery.

Looks like you had a great family outing!

“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.
