Used your floating line today for Golden trout in the Kernville, CA watershed – was I impressed! Casts easily with good control even in windy conditions, floated well without causing drag. Great line – worth the price.

About Zen Tenkara

At Zen we're all about the duality of finding balance on the water and defining American Tenkara.

The yin: We strive for optimal balance between elegance and practicality, strength and beauty, uniqueness and tradition so that customers can truly experience peace and pleasure from their purchase.

The yang: Zen has taken traditional Japanese Tenkara where it hasn't gone before, testing limits, breaking boundaries and defining American Tenkara so that customers can push their skills to achieve a thrill like no other.
