I have gotten emails from several customers concerned that their packages have been lost because they are late and/or tracking data shows them to have been in the Jersey City sorting facility for days.

Those packages are now moving. Most have been delivered already.

Please understand that shopping online this year has been unprecedented, and the USPS, UPS and FedEx are trying to run beyond their capacity. In the 10 years I have been shipping packages, (thousands and thousands of packages), the USPS has NEVER lost a Priority Mail package, and has lost only two or three First Class packages. Please be patient. Your packages will arrive.


Tenkara Bum 36 Rod

First fish

All there is to say is Wow! I received my new Tenkara Bum 36 rod this week and if you are looking for one rod to fish kebari, bead head nymphs or overhand worms with split shot, this is the rod. After fishing with Chris on a few occasions and watching him test lots of rods, I knew he would build a great rod and he has. I took it to a PA stream today and on the third cast landed a small brown trout with a kebari fly.

After a few more fish with tenkara type flies, I decided to test the rod with Chris' one fly pattern, the overhand pink chenille worm and a split shot, and connected with much larger fish, some a little over 15 inches. The rod cast a variety of flies well and handled a range of fish. The overhand worm is amazing - simple to tie, easy to fish and extremely effective.

One fly, one rod may be the new mantra for my tenkara/keiryu fishing.

Great job on the new rod.

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.
