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

Largemouth Bass

Largemouth Bass

Went out to Mill Creek on the West side of the Metro, another clear rocky creek. There's a huge hole under a bridge "the aquarium" clear, deep and full of fish. I hoped to see some bass cruising around and rigged up away from the water and moved in very slowly. The bass were there, along with the sunfish, carp, suckers, chubs and lots of minnows. Within five minutes I cast to this fish and watched the take. It was one of those rare times when every part of a plan actually worked like it was supposed to. This is one of the nicest bass I've ever caught, around 14" and fat. I had a size 6 killer bugger with lead wire on my Kiyose 33SF, the perfect setup.

“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.
