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.

The little fish are back

by JJ Mathes

The creek where I fished for micros this summer washed out when we received 2-inches of rain in a couple of hours. This morning I tied two #28 flies and went back to the creek, the little fish are returning.

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.
