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 - Striped Shiner

Striped Shiner

Striped Shiner

After catching the rainbow and getting that out of the way, only joking, I like to catch trout. I spent the rest of my time exploring a small section of the Osage Fork of the Gasconade river which is a few miles east of Lebanon, MO.

I was prospecting with a size 12 killer bugger and catching lots of sunfish, mostly longear, and then got into some striped shiners hanging around a riffle.

“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.
