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.

Zen Destinations

Make each day an adventure to remember—and leave the crowds behind. The key to an unforgettable fishing adventure is location, prime location.

From Alaska to Mexico to Argentina and beyond, get ready for a trip of a lifetime and a Tenkara experience like no other.

Introducing our latest destination: Costa Rica.

Zen Community

Zen is committed to helping you find your balance on the water. Simplicity and functionality drive the innovative designs of our products, but we care equally about your experience on the water.
