I want to thank you for the rapid response you gave me regarding my new Zen Tenkara Zako Rod I bought at the fly fishing expo! I got the new tips the next day after we talked! I appreciate your talking with me and showing me how to attach the line to the rod, the pictures tell the story! I'm looking forward to trying the rod out soon and using it to get my sister fly fishing with me! I'll stay in touch and let you know when I catch a beautiful trout! Thanks again for caring about a customer! So awesome in this day and age! Take care and God bless!

My wife loves her Zen Tenkara rod and has caught trout throughout Colorado. We have a wonderful opportunity to go to El Faro Lodge in Cuba. I am thinking of getting her a rod to catch bonefish for that trip. Thanks for a great product and all your leadership in the field.

WOW ! You totally caught me off guard with the Suzume rod. I was speechless

- Richard, Denver

Such an exquisite, in depth and open sharing for an answer to an email inquiry. I did not expect it. I loved it. The kind of company, answer and owner one seldom experiences today

- Robert, Chicago

Your enthusiasm for pushing the limits of what can be done with tenkara is contagious

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 with a small length of line on the water and the tippet ring on the terminal loop made things easy. Great line – worth the price.

Loving the Zen experience

- Harold, Oregon

thanks once again for your personal amazing pointers you’ve provided on this page. This has been really unbelievably generous of you to give without restraint all a number of us would’ve advertised as an electronic book to make some money on their own.

F*ckin’ tremendous

About Zen 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.
