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 T-Shirt

Clearance Sale
Short sleeve solid colors - $11
Long sleeve - $15

You asked for it, you got it. Show 'em you're a bum in your TenkaraBum T-Shirt! They're 100% cotton so they're as comfy as they come. They don't have that stupid scratchy label at the back of your neck. They do have a pocket in front for your small fly box or tippet spool. What more could you want? Yes? Why yes, they're made in the USA.



Gray (long sleeve) - back detail

Pocket detail

No-scratch printed label

The design is simple and no nonsense - a lot like tenkara. Just the TenkaraBum logo and stamp on the back, and just the stamp on the front pocket (the XXL shirts have the stamp in front but don't have a pocket).

The olive is for fishing. The black is for night fishing, ninjas and tenkara outlaws. Camo is for stealth. Collect the whole set.

The gray is as close to the color of a Great Blue Heron as I could get. It is a color that works for them. Think how close they have to get to the fish!

TenkaraBum T-Shirt Gray, Small (long sleeve) - $15


Domestic shipping is $4, via USPS First Class Mail (unless ordered with an item that must go via Priority Mail, and which has a higher shipping charge). The charge is added to your order automatically.

The charge for international shipping depends on the destination country, the weight of the package, the overall length of the package and the value of the package.

International purchases may be subject to import duties and taxes. I cannot keep track of all import regulations in all countries written in all languages. Understanding and paying import duties and taxes are the responsibility of the buyer.

“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.
