Got some extra money? Want to buy a really expensive fishing net? Wanna help the people of Japan? Tenkara USA has you covered.
There's an eBay auction of a rare tenkara net (or tamo) going on now in which 100% of the money will go toward Japanese relief efforts. The current bids are up to $430, but the auction runs for another 3 days so hopefully they will continue to escalate. This blog pokes somewhat distasteful fun at a ton of different subjects, but the tragedy going on in Japan will not be one of them.
On a lighter, and definitely distasteful note, did you see this!?! I caught it on the Fail Blog last week...and although it must of hurt a bit, I still think it's pretty funny...once you get past how scary this
I received a promo copy of River of Monsters, a fiction book by George Douglas this past weekend. Yeah, that George Douglas, Freshwater Fishing Hall of Fame Inductee and Publisher of Kype Magazine.
I read the first chapter or so and it's actually a pretty interesting book - considering I'm not a huge fan of fiction...or reading books for that matter. Allusions galore to sabertooth fish or something like that. I'll be doing a full review of it once I finish, but something you may want to check out if you're looking for an easy read. It's the kind of book you could pretty much finish off during a long plane ride or over a leisurely weekend.
Have I mentioned it's time for March Madness yet? Who's in your Final Four? K.C. went to Kansas...so there's a big Jayhawk flag flying in front of our house. You can probably tell where our allegiance is - Rock Chalk.
I went to Division III Widener University...and well...no matter how far they expand the field they're never getting to the 'Big Dance.' That would probably change for next year if they recruit this guy...oh, wait...that's how my alma mater ballz already.
Oh, and if you haven't seen that ESPN Film on the Fab Five that ran on Selection Sunday...you must see it. I can't help but agree with Jalen Rose's opinion of Duke.
Finally, this week's blog love goes to a new blog to the blogroll, Dustin's Fly Box. I've noticed that Dustin has been making the blogging rounds lately, and to be honest I'm glad he is - there's some great flies on the blog that is also written with a good sense of humor. A recent blog milestone was 50 followers, I'm sure my readers can add a few more.
