Tenkara Shirt

As If I didn't have about a thousand other things to do with my time, I have also decided to make myself a shirt.  I did this Tenkara sketch for a friend but soon decided that it was to good not to put on a shirt and show it off.  So I have decided to have a few extras printed to share with my fellow Tenkara followers.
Just a simple shirt with a simple design on the back which also keeps the cost down.  No advertising for this blog or Hexfishing.com, just a simple shirt with a simple design to sport your love of Tenkara.  If you are interested please let me know in a comment or an email so I will have a good idea the quantity and sizes to order.  They will be high quality screen prints done locally and not by a Zazzle type company.  The cost will be @ $22-$24 total (That's including Shipping!!!!! @ $18 per shirt + @ $5 shipping)  I need to know who is in before the 10th of next month in order to get them printed and shipped in time for the Tenkara Summit in late August.
I will also be posting a paypal button for purchase soon so you can get off the couch and commit to the purchase.

QUIZ TIME!!!  I was out fishing the upstate of SC the other day in a scorching 100 deg heat and ran across this little guy on a log.  Anyone out there know what it is?  Beside it being about 2.5in long, its big black eyes on its back made it really stand out.  I honestly have a fairly good idea what this big bug was but am not 100% so I appeal to the blogging community.  What Is It?

brk trt - thanks for kind words.

texwisgrl - I knew you might get it. especialy after I saw your beatle pics.

gnflyfishing - IT is NOT a Zazzle shirt. It will be printed localy by a great print shop in the business for years. Not a Zazzle shirt.

I might be interested in a Med. Will they come in different colors or just the gray?

Joel, sorry I didn't see your beetle yesterday. TexWisGirl is right, it is an Eyed Elater or Eyed Click Beetle (Alaus oculatus).

Jason - Glad to hear it, Vote for your color on the post 'You Choose'.

Jay - Distracted by the shirt, I understand, TexWisGirl beat you to it as you can see. I think you have to get up fairly early to beat her to a post.:)
