Covid-19 Announcement

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. I plan to go to a post office on the morning of April 3 because rain is forecast. Next rainy day is forecast for Tuesday or Wednesday of next week.

Most international flights have been cancelled, so there is no ETA for out-of-stock items that come from Japan.


Replacement parts

I can think of no better way than to support chris's integrity than to relay my story. In the excitement of my first fish I broke the tip of my Nissin rod. Chris promptly guided me through re attaching the Lilian & set about ordering a new tip which is confirmed in transit. The "new" stockist of Nissin in uk could not trace the model number!
Despite us poststal service uk government & our very own Royal Mail rip off attitude I will continue to support & buy from Chris .

Thanks

Mark,

Thanks for your vote of confidence. I still took too long to get you the replacement. I have instituted some changes and should be able to supply parts for the rods I normally carry - and even some of the one-off rods like yours on a same day or next day basis.

Best regards,
Chris

As age slows my pace, I will become more like the heron.


Warning:

The hooks are sharp.
The coffee's hot.
The fish are slippery when wet.
