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.

TenkaraBum Challenge - Blacknose Dace

Blacknose Dace

Blacknose Dace

Went to a brookie stream expecting to catch a brook trout, but hoping to catch a blacknose dace. The dace came first (actually caught two dace but only one brookie). Both were caught on a size 26 black Killer Bugger with a 1/16" gold tungsten bead, which proved to be the star fly of the day.

“The bitterness of poor quality remains long after the sweetness of low price is forgotten” – Benjamin Franklin

"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.
