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.

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 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,

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.
