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.
Shimano Folding Net
by Adam Hanna
The Shimano Folding Net encompasses the ideaology behind tenkara- simplicity! One might say it's complicated mechanics actually prove me wrong but the design and production behind tenkara rods are just as complexly engineered.
This net is the only net I will carry as long as it is around. It's packable, sturdy, and has great mesh material. The pouch even has a belt loop that I put through my wading belt to wear on my side. That makes it really easy to whip out when I have a fish on my line. Shimano's design is once again, superb!

"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.
