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.

I would expect nothing less! I really do wonder why I fish anything else.

In my very limited experience with Killer Bugs, they work great on tailwaters but not as good on free-flowing streams. More shrimp/scuds/etc in the water?

I pretty much only fish tailwaters but a recent comment by rmcworthing on the Tenkara USA forum "First, it seems to be working. Really well. It's got me pretty close to a one fly angler lately. It seems to produce in a variety of waters, big and little, rich and poor, whether scuds are around or not." suggests that they work anywhere it's wet.

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.
