TenkaraBum.com is located in
New York City, which is essentially locked down.
Package pickup has
been suspended. My neighborhood post office is closed. I go outside as little as possible because I am in an "at risk" group.
TenkaraBum.com is still open, for now. Next shipments tentatively scheduled for Wednesday, April 8 (rain in the forecast).
Most international flights have been cancelled, so there is no ETA for out-of-stock items that come from Japan.
Wading Gaiters (as worn by Dr Ishgaki and sold by Chris)
by Craig Price
Immediately bought a pair when Chris got them in. They are extremely high quality and seem perfectly designed for the intended use, better than the modified paintballers that I (still) use.
However, I thought I would leave some advisory information for others. They only come in one size, which I would class as Large to XLarge, not suited to smaller chaps.
I have never used mine, as I found them just far too big. I am 5'8" and slimly built, with very skinny legs. The gaiters are designed for a bigger leg, both in terms of length and height.

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.
