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.

Wyatt's first fish

Wyatt's first fish

I've taken my son, Wyatt, fishing several times already with my various tenkara/keiryu rods. Today he was actually patient enough and cooperative enough for the killer bug to do its trick.
Caught a nice bluegill with his Kosasa 150 on ~3.5' of 3.5LL and 2' of 5X.
He was so happy about it. I hadn't even caught anything yet at that point, but later got a cute crappie with my kiyotaki.

How old is Wyatt?

Wyatt will be 4 next weekend. He's been going "fishing" with me for the past couple months, but most times I hand him a rod he just slings it around both scaring the crap out of me and any other living thing nearby.

Now that's a memory to cherish. You will both recall this moment with a smile from now on. Congratulations!

And the perfect t-shirt for all those that say Tenkara is not fly fishing! :-)

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.
