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 - Largemouth Bass

Size 18 Black Killer Bugger Fly

Size 18 Black Killer Bugger Fly

This is a continuation of my Bluegill story/entry.
Right after I caught my Bluegill, I got right back to fishing and it wasn't long before I had my second species on a Black Killer Bugger fly. It was the same 18 sized fly that I had just caught the Bluegill on.

After letting the bass tire out I was bringing him to shore when he had one more burst of fight and went right into a clump of algae. But thankfully I was able to still pull the little guy towards me along with a huge clump of algae without breaking the tippet or without him popping off.

Second species on a Black Killer Bugger Fly.... Largemouth Bass. And though he is small, he was still a big catch for me.

"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.
