Wow! Kudos to Daniel and Tenkara USA!

I just got a note from Daniel saying that he had mailed me a new rod sock to replace the one that shredded!

It caught me by surprise, and I am very impressed by the level of service! Thank you, Daniel!

FWIW, I really wasn't upset with what happened to the original rod sock - I've done a fair bit of sewing, and know how easy it is to stitch a little too close to the edge sometimes. I just hadn't gotten around to making a new one yet - too lazy, I guess! this topic just jogged my memory about a job I needed to take care of before the season got started again.

But now, thanks to Daniel's kindness, it's not something I need to worry about at all!

Thank you, Daniel!

I put the rod into the supplied faux-velvet sock butt first, then turn it around and insert it into the Tenkara tube tip & plug (and velcro) first. That way the velcro will compress easily around the narrow section and the sock has the least material around the butt. It goes in comes out quite easily from the comfortably snug fit.
I would like to have the modest contact with the nature in hope of continuing the beautiful streams forever
