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 - Chain Pickerel

Double Trouble Bead Head Bugger

Double Trouble Bead Head Bugger

Stopped at one of the Cranberry Bogs in South NJ for a quick shot at a Pickerel. I needed to use a spinning rod so I could lift any fish so I tied a double bead head Killer Bugger to add some weight for casting.

It worked and I managed to hook one of four fish. Not bad for 20 minutes of fishing.

I'm not sure why the water looks so blue in the picture. It is actually a dark tea color which is characteristic of Pine Barrens waters.

“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.
