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.
Replacement Part Experience
by Bob H
Earlier this year I purchased from Chris a Daiwa Kiyose 30SF rod. On its maiden fishing outing, I was not paying attention and when collapsing the rod I broke the 2nd section. I contacted Chris that night and by and ordered a replacement. By weeks end and replacement part received, I was back on the river fishing. I can say by personal experience, the availability of replacement parts are not an issue when ordering thru Chris and I plan on ordering from Chris in the future.

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.
